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.

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.

Visited Jog Falls on Aug 5 by travelling in this train from end to end. Below are my observations
1. Train was already shunted on PF6.
2. Vishwamanava was already standing on PF3. Vishwamana rake was longer and had D5 while my train was short at 16 coaches and no D5. The GS coaches start after D4.
3. My first disappointment was seat
...
more...
numbering of CC coach doesn`t match with that in IRCTC. I booked 2 separate tickets so that both me and my wife were allotted window seats. However those were Middle and Aisle seats. Looks like aisle seats are the ones with windows.
4. Occupancy at 70% from MYS to SMET. After that it is 10%.
5. At MYS PF#6, one one coffee vendor was there.
6. At Krishnarajanagara and Hole Narsipur, train stopped for 30-45 seconds only compared to 1-2 mins.
7. No Railneer. Only Bailey water bottle available priced at 15 rupees and has good quality bottle compared to slim railneer.
8. Churmuri, some buns, maddur vada available at small stations.
9. At Hassan, we could get 2 idli, 1 vada with chutney at 50 rupees. No dose available.
10. At Arsikere, my train arrived after chalukya and departed before it. Not much occupancy obsered in sleeper coaches.
11. Kadur and Birur are deserted junctions with no trains, no people, no facilities, not even stray dogs or cows.
12. Many people lie down on 3 seats in CC coaches as everyone was sleepy.
13. TTE deboarded at SMET. So anyone can travel in CC coach in that leg.
14. SMET-TLGP is the best part of journey. It is a single line with no electrification. One can spot peacocks flying on either side, heavy dense trees on both sides. Kind of like images from Nilambur Road from Kerala.
15. I found GS seats to be best. If the rush is less, one can easily lie back entirely. In D1-D4, people were asleep with only half part of body supported by seat.
16. One cannot transverse from CC, D coaches to GS coaches as they have no vestibules.
17. Liked the environment of Sagara and Talguppa. Not much commercialization, felt nice and quiet with just 1 food stall with biscuits.
18. Will add them later as soon as I remember anything important.

Useful Useful
The 20608/Mysuru (MGR) Chennai Central Vande Bharat Express provided an amazing journey from Mysore to Bangalore, running nonstop at 100 kilometers per hour. The smoothness of the ride was impressive, with no side-to-side movement or jerks, as confirmed by the water bottle experiment. The food was excellent, and the service provided was top-notch. The train accelerates quickly, and we arrived at KSR Bengaluru City Junction (Bangalore) two minutes ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend this train, and thank Indian Railways for their exceptional service to South India, particularly to the state of Karnataka.

There are plenty of City Buses plying between City Bus Stand to KRS. I think the price is Rs.15-20 (I donot know the exact ticket price as I usually cover the sight seeing places like KRS, Chamundi Hills, Sri Ranga Patna etc., by buying day pass).
