On the eve of Maha Shivaratri  on 13th February, 2018, we are introducing a must visit big shiva Temple in Kolar District. Eshwara is the main deity of the Kotilingeshwara Temple. This temple is in the Kammasandra village near KGF in the Kolar district. The Kotilingeshwara temple houses the biggest Shivalinga in the entire world. It is said that during Mahashivaratri, there are close to two lakh devotees who visit this place every year. Kotilingeshwara is about 6 kilometers from the famous Kolar Gold Fields (KGF).

The Kotilingeshwara temple is located in a peaceful environment. There is plush greenery surrounding the temple. This world famous temple has lakhs of shivalingas that are spread over fifteen acres of land. There are close to 86 lakh shivalingas in the temple. The shivalingas are of various sizes and this is how the temple has got its name ‘Kotilingeshwara’.

There are more than a million lingas that have been installed in and around the temple over thirteen acres of land. The temple architecture is simply superb and you cannot help but wonder how these lingas would have been installed. Just outside the temple there are two flower trees, one Nagalinga and Cannon Ball flower. It is said that unmarried women who pray and tie a yellow thread to the tree are blessed with a happy married life.

The credit for constructing the Kotilingeshwara temple rests with Swamy Sambha Shivamurthy. The temple can be visited from early morning till about 9 PM at night. The tallest linga stands at 180 feet which is about 33 meters in height. There is a very big Nandi in front of the Kinga. The other small temples in and around the vicinity of the Kotilingeshwara temple are of Vishnu, Brahma, Maheshwara, Ganapati, Rama, lakshmana, Sita temple and Anjaneya.

It is said that the epic Ramayana took place during the Treta Yuga. The war between Sri Rama and Ravana clearly depicts victory of good over evil. When Lord Rama attained victory, he travelled from Dhanuskodi to Rameshwaram and installed the Linga. This was a noble way to providing moksha to those who perished. Lord Rama offered his prayers to this Linga and prayed for people who laid their lives down in the battle. It is said that in the Kali Yuga, the Kotilingeshwara temple has been built for instilling the same culture of peace, divinity and prosperity.

Kabbe Waterfalls
One of the villagers gave us the direction to the falls. To reach the  Balliyatra(Kabbe) falls, one has to trek for over an hour in slippery path. Since the trip was not meant for trek, people were not ready for it. There is place one could see the falls from a distance. We went to that point and enjoyed the beauty of the falls. The falls looked very similar to Bandaje Arbi falls.

Baganamane Waterfalls

Chelavara Waterfalls
Chelavara is known for its huge waterfall. It viewed from the road itself. There is also a way to get down and to the top of the falls. The water level of falls was quite high and we could not really get too close to the falls. My attempts to take a photo of falls in full view went in vain. One wrong step would end ones life. Certainly, there was no necessity to take that risk.

Since the driving directions to the falls were known to us from our first visit, we quickly reached the last motorable stretch from where we had to trek down to view the falls. The drive itself is a mesmerizing one, with the greenery around and the narrow and curvy roads. It feels through the drive at every stretch, as though there's something more beautiful in store for us to see! It was a complete feast to our eyes.

Kuppehole Waterfalls
The Kuppehole Falls near Haleri, off the Madikeri-Sunticoppa-Kushalnagar road is in full flow. The roar of the water piercing the eerie silence of the surroundings is bewitching. Muddy water coming down in huge sheets along the woods is a great sight. It joins the Hattihole near Madapur, ultimately flowing into the Harangi resrvoir.

Karike – Treasure of Water Falls In raining season, about 25 water falls welcomes you near karike village near to Bhagamandala, which is Kodagu-Kerala border area. No residents are found nearby as this area is covered with thick forest. The different falls seems to compete in attracting the viewers.

Must Visit Shiva Temple in South India - Sri Kshethra Dharmasthala

Dharmasthala is a must visit famous Shiva temple in Dakshina Kannada District of Karnataka and it is a must visit popular tourist place in South India. Dharmasthala is the perfect embodiment of the word "Dharma" for it displays every shade of meaning with which the word is imbued. The greatness of Dharmasthala, however is the fact that it has added an active element to "Dharma", such that it touches the lives of people with a transformational directness that is unique. and one of the popular tourist place near Mangalore.

To those that come for worship, Dharmasthala represents religious tolerance wherein caste, 
creed and faith of pilgrims are no bars. For here, the Jain Theerthankara is worshipped on the same consecrated grounds as the native Daivas and Lord Manjunatha (Lord Shiva). The priests are Vaishnavite Brahmins and the guardian of the temple is Heggade, a Jain by faith. Altogether forming a confluence of faiths that harmonize in belief of the Omnipotent.

To those that come for justice, Dharmasthala is the scale that does not tip in favour of a lawyer's glib tongue. Here, without any legal formality or argument the Heggade dispenses justice, acting in the tradition of his ancestral role as the Heggade and representing the presiding deities.

To those that come in need, Dharmasthala is an Oasis, where succour, solace and hope abound in the serenity of the temple and in the free hostelries that provide food and shelter.

And to those that come in curiosity, Dharmasthala is a miracle of paradoxes. Here different faiths co-exist in harmony just as traditions make room for experimental services, High or low, rich or poor, devout or atheist, at Dharmasthala all are equal.

The temple is about 800 years. The temple houses a shiva linga of gold. It is belived that Shiva linga was brought by Lord Annappa fom a place called Kadri near Mangalore. The temple is unusual in that this Shaiva kshetra is headed by a Jain administration and poojas are conducted by Vaishnava priests.

Dharmasthala, a sacred place, as its name indicates, is a place of the Truth, Faith, Communal harmony and spiritual experience in the Holy Land. Here, everyone enjoyes the generous hospitality, irrespective of caste, creed or class whatsoever. Dharmasthala pilgrim center located on the banks of river Nethravathi in Beltangady Taluk of Dakshina Kannada (South Canara) District.

Dharmasthala is popular for temple of Sri Manjunatha, God Shiva’s another avatar, Hence, The Maha Shivaratri is celebrated grandly in temple premises. So we have arranged a trip to Dharmasthala from Bangalore.

First, we booked seats in KSRTC’s new venture ‘Karanataka Vaibhava’ Its as same as ‘Rajahamsa’ (KSRTC’s Delux Bus Service) and the fare is very cheaper than the Rajahamsa. Bus fare is little more than KSRTC’s ordinary service ‘Karnataka Sarige’ (Karnataka Sarige – Rs. 220/-, Karanataka Vaibhava – Rs. 237/-).

We started at Sunday night from Bangalore and reached Dharmasthala at 5.00 a.m. on the day of Shivarathri. Once we reached there, we tried to book a room, but since there is very crowd, we did’nt get the room, so we taken ticket for ‘Hairike Mudi’ and went for queue. Its amazing!!! There a queue stands more than a kilometer for harike mudi at the time of 6.00 a.m. we also included in that queue. after seven hours of waiting, we reached the harike mudi place ( Note : On the eve of Shivaratri, there are more than one lakh pilgrims visited Dharmathala. On other days, you may finish within an hour).
Once we finished, we went to Nethravathi river to take bath, (2kms from temple) and came back to temple at 3.00 p.m. and the temple will open for darshan at 5.00 pm, so we went for lunch in Annapoorna Complex (Temple’s free annadana complex). and went to see gommateshwara statue.

We got Darshan at 7.30 p.m. and went again for dinner at 8.00p.m.

We have taken tickets for return to Bangalore in Karnataka Vaibhava bus, and reached Bangalore at 5.00 a.m. 
Overall, it’s a pleasant journey!!!!

This temple located in Suriya Village,near Dharmastala is one among them. Manly dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple has got a unique tradition of offering clay sculptures to God. Generally people offer money or gold to God when their wishes are fulfilled as a symbol of gratitude, but in this temple people make clay offerings to the God.The Suriya temple is probably only one of its kind because of its unique tradition of clay offerings.

Clay is within the tradition of India.We make ganesha idol,durga mata idol(usually in West Bengal) and many more using clay.So clay must be pure and good compared to anything and I believe god likes to get clay offerings.
