Prasad Thanks for the excellent thread. Had an opportunity to see a few temples recently:
The Dattatreya / Anjanaeya / Navagraha temple at Hoskerehalli, Bangakore is very nice - it is a new one, though; not an ancient one.

The Navabrindavan and other temples such as the Yantrodharaka Anjaneya at Anegundi are excellent.

Navabrindavana is a set of nine 'brindavanas' where nine saints have attained 'jeeva samadhi' at different times. They are on a set of rocks in the middle of Thungabhadra river. Open air without any shelter whatsoever, puja is conducted only in one session each day - morning to noon. Then the priests return to Anegundi. You have to commute to this spot by coracle - a motor boat has been recently introduced. (Visitors note that men have to wear dhoti and women sarees; silence to be observed at the spot as the saints are in penance.) Devotees circumambulate all the nine brindavanas along one large circle drawn in yellow like a traffic line - one is not allowed to cut across. Ideal spot for meditation. There is a cave where Saint Vyasa had meditated. Anybody can sit in this cave and meditate.

Anegundi can be approached through road via Hospet (Hospet is an overnight journey by train or may be 5 to 7 hours drive from Bangalore) - it is about 45 km from Hospet via Thungabhadra dam. At Anegundi, a regular boat service takes you to Navabrindavana.

The Yantrodharaka Anjaneya temple can be reached by boat from Anegundi or from Hampi by road. Vehicles will not proceed beyond a point.

Sugriva's cave etc are on the way to this temple. Sita Devi's saree marks as she was taken away are engraved on the rocks.
