Step beyond the farms and you will find Nature enjoying herself wearing all hues.
Some installations are unique and seem absurd at first sight. This big man buried up to his neck is actually a nice location for a tete-a-tete!
The home stay is owned and operated by one Mr. Udaya Simha, whose friendly nature and deep knowledge of the surroundings bowled me over. He is also an artist and a sculptor whose work can be viewed on the expanse of his farm.
If you suddenly walk into this location, you would wonder for a moment whether a group of aborigines are waiting to meet you!
Simha Farms is a homestay located on the foothills of Kodachadri. It is a convenient place to stay when you are on the other side of Linganamakki Reservoir. About 35 km from Hosanagara, you will come across a unique bus shelter at a place called Madodi. A left turn off the main road passing through plantations of arecanut & cardamom takes you to Simha Farms.
A rhino that you would least expect to meet! If you have done your homework, you will indeed be looking for a sunset or sunrise atop Kodachadri, or to hit the farther reaches of Sharavathi backwaters, or even a drive down to Sigandur or Kollur.
Here is a gigantic scorpion placed in a very appropriate location. These artworks have made Simha Farms popular with children as well.
It wouldn't be surprising if you feel you have come to stay at a vast art gallery with exhibits spread all around, instead of the numerous other attractions that surround the place! Here is an artwork installed at the farm.
