Anegudde Vinayaka Temple

Kumbashi or Anegudde is a small village located at a distance of 31 kms from Udupi. Anegudde is the combination of two words - 'Aane' meaning 'Elephant' and 'Gudde' meaning 'hillock' as it is the abode of the elephant-headed god, Lord Vinayaka.



Here on the hillock there is the famous Shri Varasidhi Vinayaka Temple. The main sanctum enshrines the magnificent image of Lord Vinayaka in a standing posture. It is also believed that the statue of Lord Ganapathi is growing every year, and certainly the reputation also wide spreading.


All around the shrine there are sculptural depictions from the Bhargava Purana. 




How to Reach:

This is on the National Highway from Udupi to Kumdapur. This comes on the right side of the road with a huge gate as entrance to the temple.
