A Jain temple town with a fascinating past

A peaceful temple town that makes a great stopover on the journey between Mysore and Kerala.

Sultan Battery takes its name from the local Jain temple which was used by Emperor Tipu Sultan as a battery to store ammunition in the 18th Century. Today this peaceful town makes an excellent stopover on the journey from Mysore to Kerala. This is a place to kick back, enjoy the peace and quiet and have a few leisurely walks, great for sighting birds and other wildlife. A short drive can take you to the Neolithic caves at Eddakal, Muthanga Game Sanctuary, and numerous waterfalls and lakes.

A stay at the nearby Tranquil Resort is an experience to remember, where you’ll be a guest of the family and get to enjoy daily life on this coffee and spice plantation.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
