Last week, we had travelled to Bekal, Karnataka for vacation. From Chennai, we flew down to Mangalore, from there it was about 90 minutes by road to Bekal. We stayed in the newly opened Taj Bekal resort, it’s a beautiful property, surrounded on three sides by water – the Arabian Sea, Backwater and a lake.
One of the days, we visited Bekal Fort.
Nearby, there is an ashram belonging to Swami Nithyananda Ashram. There are caves in the ashram where swami’s are said to have stayed and mediated towards almighty. We were told there is a tunnel from the ashram that runs to places along the west coast of India.
