Lepakshi lies in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh. The name “Lepakshi” means “the village of the blinded eye.” It refers to the treasurer who sacrificed his eyes because he overused the money he received from the treasury making the village people bankrupt. Lepakshi is home to the Veerabhadra temple dedicated to Hindu deity Lord Veerabhadra. There are also two other shrines dedicated to Hindu Deities Vishnu and Shiva.

Best time to visit: December to February

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
