To be read in consonance with : /blog/post/2801842
R. K. Narayan's house is about 3 Kms from MYS station. You can take autos from the station and ask for Yadavagiri. The drivers wont know his house, so ask them to take you to New Dasprakash Hotel (Hotel Paradise), from there its just few houses away.
place is open from 10 am to 5 pm. Tuesdays holiday. Entrance is free.
A very well maintained heritage building - museum, whose restoration and collection of items were all done by Karnataka Govt. It cost them 2.4 crore to buy and some 35 lakhs to restore it.
There are 2 floors to view. Ground and first floor. Some 6 rooms have his personal belongings, pics and awards. The best room is in first floor where he just sat and contemplated and wrote. That room has a 180 degree view.
.................................................. ......................
Note: I have posted many pics of the place, so that people who are his fans (members or visitors of IRI) can have a look, as they may not be able to go to Mysuru.

As I stated in my main blog, 6 rooms have all the memorabilia. 7th room they will open soon, with "Malgudi Days" episodes being played on loop. Hope that happens soon, and will draw in more visitors, who are fans of the serial.

Thanks Mr.Sirigannadam Gelge. Oh, the Das Prakash Hotel which was earlier operating near City Bus Stand is now shifted to Yadavgiri. A very good,neat and also a heritage hotel of Mysore admired by many for decades. When I visited Mysore last time, I went there (Near city bus stand) but was disappointed as the gates were closed and a board was hung that read 'closed for renovation'. Yadavgiri I think is where Ramakrishna Ashram is situated. I will visit this hotel and also Shri.R.K.Narayan's heritage building/museum. Thanks for the information.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
