LORD SRIKANTESWARA OF NANJUNGUD

The momentous feat of swallowing halahalam and the unique demonstration of his peerless concern for lokakalyana took place at a sacred spot now goes by the name of Nanjangud, a supreme mokshapuri and a premier pilgrimage centre of our Punya Bharat, luring lakhs of pious people from time immemorial. It has many unique features that raised it to the highest pedestal amongst those of similar shrines. It is here Parasurama did penance for expiation of the sin of matricide, it is this place that witnessed the wedding of Mahalakshmi with Mahavishnu and it is here the dreadful demon Kesi was thrown into yagnakund by Lord Maheswar. The emergence of this place as an unparalleled thirtha kshetra of eternal significance has a fantastic beginning.

Enshrined in several sacred scriptures, eulogized by Veda Vyasa; embodied in the archives; endowed by renowned princes; embellished by illustrious sculptors and emancipating millions of devout religionists, this sacrosanct Yatrasthala has formed, as it were, the pendant of the necklace adorning the Goddess of temples that Karnataka is.
