Karighatta is a small hillock, on the banks of the river Lokapavani, which is 20 km away from the city of Mysore and 6 km from Srirangapatna. It has been mentioned in the Puranas as ‘Neelachala’, a Sanskrit word, which means 'Blue Mountain.' The temple atop the hill dedicated to Lord Srinivasa, attracts thousands of people every year. There are lots of long and sharp grasses known as ‘Dharbe’ around the temple. A beautiful landscape can be viewed from the hilltop. The confluence of the Cauvery and Lokapavani, a tributary of the Cauvery, is an attractive sight.
