We actually stayed in Manthralayam and worshipped Raghavendrar. After a day’s stay here, we arranged a van and reached Anegunthi through Sindhanur, Gangawati and it took three hours, for 170 km route. At Anegunthi, we have to purchase the tickets for archanai at Nava Brindavanam (Thulasi archanai, honey abishekam etc.) We crossed the river Thungabadra through a motor boat on payment.(parisal was in the past). We have to light 11 ghee lamps there, one to the Hanuman and the remaining in the Ranganathar temple. We performed sankalpa through the priest and went round nine times and meditated. It was a nice experience.
M R V Travels (Mr Manjunatha ), near M T R Hotel, Manthralayam 518 345 arranged our travel to NB and back. Very courteous and good guidance was given. Cell Nos: 09449284490 or 9449653598 We started at 5 a.m. and reached there at 8.45 a.m., present at nava brundavanam between 9 and 11 a.m. took lunch at Raghavendra Swami mutt (we have to inform them in advance). Home Food (run by vaishnavas) and other hotels are available to get South Indian food. We returned Manthralayam by 4 p.m.
There is a temple of Goddess Lakshmi at Kallur on the route (slight detour inside @ 10 km). For want of time we could not go there but prayed Her mentally seeking blessings.
Nava Brundavan tour was really divine, especially when we remind ourselves that this is the place where Rama and Anjaneya once glorified.

Couple of points to add. Route no 3(Shortest route) proceed from Hospet to Hampi. AFter 6 Kms you get a left turn to Hampi. Dont take that left proceed straight and you get Kamalapur, Proceed again straight tou get THALARGAHTTA gate. From there there are couple of right and left but keep watching to your left where you will find a board indicating Nava Brindavanam. This road leads you to the Boat(Parisal) point.
