There are many such mysterious places in our country India, the stories, history and their structures related to which amaze people. In this episode today we are going to tell you about a church which gets submerged in every monsoon and comes back up during summer?
We are talking about Shettihalli Rosary Church, located at a distance of about 22 km from Hassan in Karnataka, the local people also know it as submerged church or floating church. This church church is a structure that is in ruins, yet it is a marvelous piece of art that still stands the test of time.
This church was built by French missionaries in 1860. Later in the 1960s, the Gorur Reservoir was constructed, so that the water of the Hemvati river could be used in a better way, but after that the land around this church became sandy. Gradually this church also got lost in the desert.
The space around this church is now submerged in water for almost a year. That’s why it’s so special. If you come here during the monsoon season, only one-third of the chapel (small church) can be seen.
It now has a mystical charm in the Rosary Church and a new name – The Drawing Church. Now this church is home to some birds and a quiet place where you can spend a relaxing evening after work.
