Chunchanakatte Falls is located near the village of Chunchanakatte, on the Kaveri River of Mysore district. The falls is in the western ghats and cascades from a height of about 20 metres. The place is considered to be holy and it is believed that Lord Sri Rama, during his vanvas visited this place.
The ancient temple here is dedicated to lord kondandarama. There are two Hanuman temples, one at the entrance to the temple and the other after the temple near the river. The most astonishing feature of this temple is that inside the Sanctum sanctorum, no deafening noise of the falls can be heard. The gushing of water from every nook and corner of the rocky bed forms a milky white falls. From one angle you can see a large quantity of water whoosh to about 10 feet away from the jutting rocky bed before cascading into the river displaying the force at which it flows. The waterfall can be reached by taking a diversion at Krishnarajanagar on the Mysore-Hassan highway. The diversion is on the left at the circle in the town of KR Nagar. A subsequent right turn on to a mud road leads to the waterfall. It is located at approximately 15 km from the town of KR Nagar.
Brahma Ratotsava is held on the day of Makara Sankranti every year in january. The cattle festival, which is one of the biggest in this region, is held during the first week of january.
