Self-Drive Cars from Bangalore to Talakadu

About Talakadu

Talakadu is an ancient town filled with history and mystery. Located on the banks of the Kaveri River, Talakadu was once home to more than 30 temples buried under the sand. Today, Talakadu is a popular pilgrimage destination for Hindus, alluring people from all over India who have heard about the “Curse of Talakadu”. Once a great city, the sands of time have literally passed over this town, making it a particularly interesting place for a weekend getaway near Bangalore.


Rent a car to Talakadu

The best way to get there is to take the NH209 from Bangalore. Take the 209 until you reach Muttanahalli - Mudukuthore Rd. Continue to follow this road until you reach Talakadu. The entire trip is roughly 150KM and should take two to three hours, but if you get lost our GPS can guide you the entire way! Get there faster than with a bus or train and stop at your own convenience.

Rent an SUV if you have a big group or rent a sedan such as the Honda City or Ford Figo if you have a smaller group or are with your significant other.

If you don't own a car or don't want to take your own car, then Zoom has several options for you to consider:
Hatchback: Take our Ford Figo ZXI for flexibility in your travels. Whether you want to go hiking or relax in the town, the Figo gives you freedom to explore Talakadu however you want.
Sedans: Zoom with Honda City or BMW 320d if you want to ride around Talakadu in style. These cars are great if you have a small group or are with your significant other.
SUV: If trekking is what you crave, the mighty Scorpio is all yours to explore the unexplored. No need to worry about steep uphill climbs or rough terrain, the Scorpio can handle it all. The Scorpio is especially good if you are with a large group of people.

All Zoom cars come with the following: -
- All-inclusive tariff which includes fuel, comprehensive insurance and taxes.
- A 3G enabled tablet, which makes navigation a breeze.
- No deposit required to Zoom off.

Note:- Prices displayed here could vary at the actual time of booking. For the latest price, please check the Zoomcar Website/App

In order to get the most out of your experience, rent a car from Zoom so that you have the freedom to explore Talakadu as you please. No need to negotiate with rickshaw drivers or walk for kilometers, you can drive however and wherever you want.

The best thing to do in Talakadu is to see the various temples. Here are three of our favorites :


Vaidyanatheswara Temple:
One of the five Panchalinga Sthalas, this temple is the most popular temple in Talakad. Pilgrims from all over India come here to worship lord Shiva and learn about the magnificent history of Talakadu.

Pathaleshwara Temple:
Connected along the same path, this temple is the second most famous, and another one of the Panchalinga Sthalas. Located roughly 1km away from Vaidyanatheswara, make sure to bring water along the walk.

Maruleshwara Temple:
The third temple of the pathway, this temple is currently maintained in the best condition of all three. A great way to end the three temple tour, and a great spot to have a picnic afterwards.

Insiders Tip: Before coming to Talakadu make sure to read about the history behind “The Curse of Talakad”
