SUBRAHMANYA - SUBRAHMANYA DEVALAYA

This ancient Subrahmanya kshetra is said to have been built by Sri Vishnu Thirthaswamy, the brother of Sri Madhwacharya, the first head of Sode Mutt at Udipi, a renowned Madhwa kshetra of inter continental reputation. It is built in the Dravidian architectural style and strictly conforms to the Vastu Sastra. Along with this, he built the Subrahmanya Mutt and it lies in the same compound separated, but by a wall. On account of its establishment by an- eminent Madhwa matha Acharya, and ably administered by the spiritual head, it is visited by Madhwas in great numbers, throughout the year. There is a big tank here going by the name of Darpana thirtha deemed very holy and purges of the sins of the bathers. Every visitor enters the shrine only after taking bath in this. The image of the Lord in standing posture decorated artistically with flower garlands and gorgeous robes casts a spell and bends the heads of the visitors in veneration. On account of its location amidst dense forest with tall trees and thick evergreen bushes, the visitors feel enthralled at the extravagance of scenic beauty and turn oblivious of themselves. It is a tourists centre and aesthetes paradise. Hence the government's keen interest in improving lodging and transport facilities. It is visited by several religious leaders, and they praised the presiding deity in sweet verses. Among them, the name of Sri Vadiraja Guru Sarvabhouma merits first mention. His immortal verses are sung on important occasions. The head of the Subrahmanya Mutt is in charge of administration and under his able and efficient governance, this kshetra is making commendable progress. Nityanaimithika prayer services are carried on according to agama tenets.

It lies 166 km off Udipi, accessible by bus or car from nearby towns like Mangalore, one of the famous towns of Karnataka.
