Boating facilities are provided here on the bank of the river. A large number of devotees visit this place during Tuesdays and Fridays. Gosayi Ghatta, : This Ghat is about one km away on the southern bank of the river Kaveri, to the right of the road to Gumbaz. Between the two Ghats, the smaller ghat has a small temple and a bathing ghat. The bigger Gosayi ghat has a temple complex at the bank of the bathing ghat. The complex has temples such as Ishwara, Hanumantha, and Kashi Vishwanatha. The spacious Kashi Vishwanatha temple is the main shrine and the flow of Kaveri in front of the temple gives immense happiness to the visitors.
