In Sode Mutt the first to be sighted is the lake known as Hayagriva Samudra. Towards the west of this lake stands a Dvaja sthamba in front of the Rama Thrivikrama temple. Both the Lord's vehicles - the Hamsa and Garuda are depicted on this Dvaja sthamba.
The Rama Thrivikrama temple consists of three parts - the sanctum sanctorum with the lovely idol of Lord Thrivikrama, the stone chariot used for transporting the Lord's idol and the idol of Sri Lakshmi Devi in the chariot.
To the north of the temple and down some 24 steps is the Rajangana which also houses the mutt's offices. Here is the entrance to the mutt, the puja mandir (ananthaasana), stores and kitchen.
Further down a flight of 24 steps, is the 'Dhavala Ganga' pushkarini along with a smaller 'Sheethala Ganga' tank nearby. The waters of these tanks are believed to be a confluence of all holy rivers of India. Around the pushkarini are located several small temples consecrated by Sri Vadiraja Teertha-Sri Chandramouleshwara on the south, Sri Veera Anjaneya on the west, Sri Venugopalaswamy on the north.
Towards the east of the pushkarini is situated the pancha vrindavans with the vrindavan of Sri Vadiraja Teertharu situated in the centre. In front of the vrindavans is the temple for Sri Vedavyasa. On the right (to the south) of the vrindavans is the temple for the Kshetrapala - Bhootharaja. To the north is the naga vana.

Can't describe in words the peace of mind you get no sooner you visit the mutt. An excellent place to feel the closeness to God. Felt not coming back at all. more »
Cool forest climate with rich greenery. Pilgrims can stay here. One cot without bed and 2 floor mats provided here for one room. Two times food is free, as Prasadam. All must sit and eat. Only limited members can sit on rock bench outside and eat. Steps pose major draw back for aged with one pain. But nothing can be done, as temple and holy pond is located at the lowest level.
One of the best place for peace and prosperity!! No discrimination they serve free food happily for anybody whether we donate or not. Room's are available during normal season. The atmosphere and natural scenery is wonderful!!
