Shettihalli Church, Hassan
(4/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Rosary Church, was built by French Missioners in 1860 and represents the Gothic Architecture. The water has depleted its structure but not the peace and serenity of the place. During Monsoons, the church gets submerged, post monsoon as the water level descends, the church emerges out. Even when the church is half under the water, you can go near it on a coracle.

  • The place has the ruins of an old church on the catchment area of Gorur dam(Gorur Hemavathi Reservoir). Best Place for Photoshoot or fa movie making. During Rainy season Church is filled with water bt in summer itz fully dry so we can feel d church. Distance from Bengaluru - Mangaluru Highway is around 16Km. Nyc place to Visit wid Family & friends. ©
  • Not much description about the Church available. It seems to be a curious question as to how the church got constructed at that particular place. The architectural beauty with just the remains is astonishing. Quiet and a calm place and makes a good place for photography enthusiasts. The river bed by the side adds to the aesthetic pallette.
  • The place has the ruins of an old church on the cachement area of dorur dam. The best time to visit is evening times. You can drive your car through the surrounding areas and its not advisable to venture into the water as its swampy. Good to spend around 2 hours. On the way you can pass through some small villages and observe typical village life.
  • Perfect picnic spot ... 3¹/2 hrs from blore enroute hassan.
  • Amazing senarie. Good location for picnic stop and for model photographers. People would like to see when it gets submerged in the back watrera of gurur dam.
