Talakaveri as the name suggests is the birth place of river Goddess Cauvery, one of the most sacred rivers of India, whose holy life is associated with one of the highest gods, like Brahma, and the illustrious Rajashri Kavera, and finally Agasthya, with whom she was united in wedlock. Taking birth in Mercara, it flows Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, making her entire course auspicious, healthy and wealthy by irrigating lands to raise bumper crops and sumptuous generation of hydro electricity to lighting up the lives of crores of people, lying outside its bounds also. It is the life breath of agriculturists of three states. Its story of birth is quite enchanting, and here at its birth place there is a temple dedicated to Sri Viswanatha.

This shrine resembles the shrines of North India, and perhaps so, the presiding deity is called Viswanatha. In addition to the august Sivalinga, there are many adorable images, like Dandapani, Dundi Vigneswara, Kalabhairava, besides Mother Visalakshi, all are wrought in stone at it. They are majestic and soul-lifting, when viewed with due devotion and worshipped soulfully. On account of the assemblage of all these deities here at one place, the .kshetra got honorific name of Dakshanakasi.

It is accessible by bus from Bhagamandala, one of the chief towns of Mercara in the state of Karnataka.
