TALAKAVERI & ITS GLORY

THE SALAM KALLU 

AS visitors move further from this, there is another big boulder called the Salamkallu. People visiting the shrines and the origin salute them from this spot both while going up and coming down. It has an exciting story recorded in the history, and the archives are preserving it. According to it, Tippu Sultan in his zeal for conquering Mercara and Coorg made repeated attacks. Once while going on this way, he was overpowered by a mysterious feeling. His inner voice forbade his going ahead. His further march as stopped abruptly as he realised the divinity hovering over the area. And he attributed it, rightly to the powers of Mother Cauvery. Being a cultured man with religious tolerance, he ordered for graceful retreat. He saluted Mother Cauvery and the shrines before his retreat. And hence that name and salutations invariably by everyone pass it. The Mother Cauvery tolerates not desecration by any. The Salam kallu thus is making people join Tippu in offering obeisance both while going and returning. Doesn't Divinity wring veneration from all, irrespective of badges? God is one and humanity. His creation too is one and only ONE. Always!
