It is suggested that tourists can visit Muttinakere Venkataramana Temple, situated near Muttinakere Lake, on a trip to Sonda. This small temple was built in the 17th century and displays the Vijayanagara style of architecture.
Tourists planning to visit Sonda are advised to head towards Shivaganga Falls, which originates from the Shalmala river. This fall plummets from a height of 74 m into a deep valley that is enclosed by beautiful dense flora. In the proximity of the fall, there is an island known as Ganeshpal, since a small idol of Ganesha is located there.
Hunasehonda Venkataramana Temple, devoted to Lord Venkataramana, is one of the smallest temples located at Sonda. Tourists can visit this temple if time allows and observe the beautiful wall carvings, roam around the lake located nearby and participate in the daily prayers.
Muttinakere Bird Sanctuary is one of the prime attractions of the village of Sonda. The sanctuary is situated at Muttinakere Lake. Various species of birds use this sanctuary for the purpose of breeding in the months from June to the end of October.
Sri Trivikrama Temple is one of the prime attractions of the small village named Sonda. It is believed that this temple was built for Rama Trivikrama Devaru by Arasappa Nayaka and the shrine was carried by Sri Bhuta Raja for Sri Vadiraja Tîrtha from Badarikashrama. On his journey to the South, he fought some demons, whom he killed with a chariot wheel.
Even today, tourists can only see 3 wheels of the chariot. A beautiful statue of Lord Thrivikrama present in the sanctum sanctorum, a chariot and the Sri Lakshmi Devi statue in the chariot are the three parts of this shrine. At the southern side of the shrine are engravings detailing the sanctioning of this land by Arasappa Nayaka, along with other related events.
Tourists can also visit Tapovana, the place where Sri Vadiraja Swamy used to meditate, while visiting Sonda. It is located along the Shalmala river, 5 km away from the Vadiraja Matha. Considered to be the ideal place for meditation, Tapovan has several relics which verify that the site was visited by Sri Vadiraja Swami when he prayed to Lord Hayagriva.
Tourists are suggested to visit Sonda Vadiraja Mutt while passing by Sonda, which is counted amongst one of the prime attractions of the village. This Mutt is bound with tall hills, dense forest, beautiful greenery and a river, creating a picturesque and serene view for all visitors.
