  • The place is getting developed very fast along the lines of tirupathi. Numerous temple sponsored accommodations coming up, facilities being provided etc.. I went there with a year old baby in march. T...  read more »
  • I visit every year to dharmasthala. Everything you find there is great and mental peace. Om namah shivaya. 
  • This temple is one of the best example how well temple can be well maintained by implementing rule of book. Everything is well placed. Visit the temple and get the blessings of Lord Manjunatha. 
  • This was an unexpected visit for me.. I came to Kukke on my bike and I had a free day and didn't know what to do with it... Came out of my room in the evening around 5:15 pm to catch the sunset and I headed towards the bus stand and saw the board which pointed towards Dharmasthala. As it was 51 kms, I wasn't sure if wanted to ride that much as I had to do another 300 km ride the next morning. As they say if there's a calling nothing can stop it... I rode to Dharmasthala and stood in the queue for almost an hour as they were performing some aarthi inside the temple. The place is clean and people were courteous. You could opt for a special Darshan by paying 200/- per head. However, the time you spend inside waiting to see God in the regular queue is priceless. I bought the 270/- ticket which includes a archane with a bag of Prasadam. Had a lovely Darshan came out collected my things from the luggage room, stopped at a canteen in front of the temple belted idlis(always safe while on rides:)). Headed back to Kukke around 8 pm. Reached Kukke at 9:30.
  • I went confucian temple (Qufu, China) in 2010.. I visited dharmasthala before 4 monthes. When I get there, Heavy Rain!.. The climate in that place is really awesome and like the climate in Qufu.. And also, The temple is constructed in Semi-Chinese style... I like all the elements in Dharmasthala... All must visit!!!
  • Om namah shivaya kaliyugada devaru sri manjunatha
  • Only temple where pooja is performed by Madhwa Brahmins to Rudra Deva ( Smartha / Shivas lord) and the temple managed by Jains. Superb integration of faith and top of all Sri Manjunatha is installed ( pratistapana ) by Srimadh Vadhiraja Acharya of Sonda math of Udupi. One of the oldest and Great temple where in food is served free to anyone and accommodation provided at very reasonable prices as good as free. Lord Manjunatha is very powerful and in South canara people even today seek justice at the temple.
  • Temple of Shri Mahadev as Shri Manjunath Swamy in the form of Shivaling, almost 800 years old. Temples of Mata Parvati is just close. Besides, there are temples of Ganesh, Navagrahas, Nag Devatas in the same courtyard. Every Monday, there is a beautiful Palanquin/Palakhi parikrama of Shri Manjunath. 5 parikrama are performed within courtyard and a decorated rath/chariot parikrama from outside of the temple. It is truly a sight to behold. It's a must visit temple.
