The Kolar district of Karnataka is preeminently wealthy not only in rich natural resources like the deposits of gold in the deep dark bowls of earth at KGF, but also in spiritual glory in the form of famous temples strewn across its vast surface area. The Kotilingalu shrine near Kolar, Anjaneya temple at Mulabagal, Maha Ganapathy temple at Kurudumalai, Amaranarayanaswamy temple at Kaivaram, Lakshminarasimhaswamy temple at Konakuntla near Batlapalli are raising the banner of theism aloft and bringing credit to the whole state. They are luring steady streams of devout bhaktas throughout the year and lakhs of people during annual festivals, when cattle fairs are held in some places.

The Kurudumalai Maha Ganapathy temple, by its imposing huge image of the archamurti - Ganapathy and his liberal grant of boons to the deserving bhaktas has established for itself an indelible name. It is evidenced by making enviable progress with march of Time, although mod culture is sniffing at the good old theistic fragrance. This temple besides renovated and maintained properly by providing amenities to the visiting yatris' has also installed in proper mini-shrine all the adorable Saivate deities, like the holy Sivalingam, a grand statue of Mother Parvathi and beautiful idol of Subrahmanyaswamy to mention a few. The Ganapathy statue is masterly sculptured and looks extremely grand. And it is about ten feet in height. It arrests the attention of the visitors and wrings veneration no sooner one comes into its sight. He is known for his easy accessibility and grants boons lavishly. Nityanaimithika worship is offered with great devotional fervour.

It lies 8 km off Mulabagal of Karnataka on Srinivaspur Road, accessible by bus from either side.
