INTRODUCTION

The list is not over, since there are many more uniques galore that meet your eye and feed your soul. Yes, feed your soul, for, the multiple temple traditions with their rare lore elevate you to such height that their chastening effect confer instant mukti to both man and beast. Finally, the rich fare offered by those Bhagannilayas lying at places like Nanjangud, Mysore, Srirangapattanam, Talakaveri, Dharmasthala, Udipi, Belur, Halebid, Sringeri, Gokarna, Humpi, Koppara and Ganagapur indeed excell the delicious dishes served in a royal banquet, relishing, which I am sure you forget time, place and your narrator even. However, acquaintance with the glory, antiquity, historicity, novelty of rituals offered in each shrine helps to establish a better rapport with the objects to be seen and enjoyed. Hence this attempt.

Let us now enter Karnataka through the portal of Nanjangud, the seat of Lord Srikanteswar first, for the primary reason that it lies nearest to Kerala, at its south western tip. Moreover, this All-merciful Lord's blessings serve us a dual purpose - grant passage for an easy and trouble free yatra in this world and a safe passport to the world above.
