Have you traveled in Coracles?

Here are few from my coracle ride , when I visited T. Narsingpur near Mysore, in Karnataka.

Coracle appears like a huge, wide shallow pan made of iron sheet and it functions like a boat. About 10-12 people can comfortably travel in this. One has to sit on the sloping frame of the coracle, we too sat down comfortably  on the cool metal sheet of the coracle and had a pleasant gliding experience .The trip was up to the confluence of 3 rivers Kaveri, Kabini and Spatika.

Confluence of these holy rivers is considered to be very sacred and many pilgrims converge here once in 3 years for  a holy dip.

have a look at my pictures.
