Talakadu is a land which according to legend was cursed to be buried in sand. Here we find about 30 temples submerged in sand. The Cauvery river makes a sharp turn here. Every 12 years a fair is conducted here called Panchalinga Darshana in honour of the five shiva temples.
The season to visit is during November to March.
There are many shops at the town selling snacks and cool drinks. A few hotels are also there in Talakadu town.
