TALAKAVERI - VISWANATH TEMPLE  

Introduction

Far from Nanjundeswara temple, the holy centre of pilgrimage, there is another reputed thirtha kshetra called Talakaveri, which means the origin of river Cauvery, where another miracle occurred a few years after the above miraculous event. Here Tippuu, the illustrious son of Hyderali was the chief human character and Mother Cauvery in her invisible form directed the play. The whole atmosphere and the entire landscape are so surcharged with divinity, that any attempt at discretion or wilful sacrilege meets with due punishment. Virtue and austerity are rewarded, better say out of proportion. The temple dedicated to Lord Viswanath and other worshipful Saivate deities installed there are so powerful and benevolent in showering boons that devout bhaktas visit round the year. The Tulsankramana festival celebrated annually lures lakhs of people and speaks the unearthly glory of this place. 

It is in the vicinity of the temple lies a big boulder, though practically inanimate and insentient, it stops every passerby and narrates the ineffable mahima of Cauvery and wrings his veneration. It lies a few metres off another big boulder also embodying another fascinating story. It narrates that Panchapandavas during their exile stayed here for sometime. This huge boulder due to its size and shape attracted Bhima most and so he called it Bhima Kallu. Devotees in their religious frenzy stand near it and salute, expressing their appreciation of Bhima's superabundant strength and stamina.
