LORD SRIKANTESWARA OF NANJUNGUD

HISTORICITY

Though this sacred shrine has been existing since that momentous occasion of Lord Maheswar's swallowing the deadly poison, inscriptional proof begins with the 15th century A.D. Moreover, there are 63 images of Saiva saints supposed to have been installed in the 11th century AD. History is silent over the valuable presents bearing vestiges of antiquity. It is believed that Diwan Purnayya and Karchur Nandiraja made their invaluable contributions to bringing the old building to the present shape. Many princes of Mysore made Nanjungud their favourite abode and adored the Lord with great ardour. In 1845, Mummadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar built the gopura and made many endowments. Royal princesses too built many mandapas and minishrines. There are several statues of the 'royal family of Wodeyar with inscriptions too. As Lord Nanjundeswara is the Kuladaivam of the royal family, they endowed it with several ways during the periods of many kings.
