Sirsi, previously known as "Kalayanapattanam" in the Sonda Dynasty, is a city in North Karnataka. The city is famous for a number of beautiful temples and waterfalls. The city's income mostly comes from agriculture, and the main crop grown is the Adike or Arecanut. Sirsi happens to be one of the largest trading centres of Arecanut.

Sirsi celebrates Holi in its own unique style. Artists perform a folk dance called "Bedara Vesha", five days prior to the Holi festival. This is accompanied by "Dollu Kunitha", another dance form wherein, artists play a local type of drum called "dollu", and dance to the tune while playing and strapping onto the drum.

Winter months of October to February are ideal to visit Sirsi, since the weather will be cool and breezy.
