TALAKAVERI & ITS GLORY

THE SOURCE

The actual birthplace of this sacred river is astonishingly small and staggers the imagination a little, since it is only a petty, pretty little lake measuring two by two feet in area. It has steps on four sides. A little further away is located another - fairly a big tank with masonary work and measures thirty by thirty feet in extent. It is two feet in depth. It is here people take bath during the ordinary and festival days. It is into this water percolates from the small one situated above and its flow goes by the name of Cauvery - a little stream in the beginning, but gets broader and broader as rivulets joint it from several places on its course. When it reaches Ratnakara - Bay of Bengal - her own Lord, it is majestic in shape; graceful in flow; broad in size and sacred in contents. The surrounding area of the origin studded with tall trees and green verdure is an eyeful sight that delights for ever, and elevates when surveyed, why the very reminiscence itself flashes an unearthly splendour on the mental screen even after decades of visitation. Normally people offer prayers first to this pretty tank, and during the Tula festival, they worship it with fruits, flowers, saffron etc. treating it as a bride going to meet her groom - the Samudraraja. The sights and sounds of its gurgling, chuckling, babbling, hopping, leaping etc. alternating in quick succession affords an unforgettable experience and beckons visits often. Hence the repetition by the visitors.
