Kadari Manjunatheshwara Temple, Mangalore

The Manjunatheshwara Temple at Mangalore on the hills of Kadri is a popular temple. It is very old temple, but the present structure built in complete stone dates to 14th century.



The temple has various statues of Gorakanatha, Machendranath, Shringinath, Manjushri, Lokshewara and even Buddha apart from Lord Manjunatha. 



In front of the temple, at an height there are a number of water ponds and there is also a huge light pole. 



There is a natural spring at an elevated location at the back of the temple. The water from this spring is let into nine ponds of different sizes adjacent to it. 



One visiting this simple temple can have a good time in the serene and calm surroundings.

The golden statues are so wonderfully detailed. The sound of flowing water is very calming, isn't it?

Simple maybe, but elegant! A lovely temple and very interesting about the springs.

Do you think they chose the location of the temple because of the spring, or was that simply an additional benefit? I think it is a great design feature that it feeds other pools.
