Shivappa Nayaka Palace, Shimoga

We have been visiting Shimoga on our way to native. This time we planned of exploring this place, during our visit. So we got down at Shimoga and joined our parents from native. Our plan was to start off with Sakrebailu Elephant Camp, but due to delay of our bus, we had to change our travel plan and thought of visiting Shivappa Nayaka Palace. Thanks to Shrinidhi Hande and Anuradha Shankar's blogs, for, we got to know about this Palace.
