Originally built between the 10th and 11th centuries as Buddhist temple, the complex was converted into a Hindu shrine by the 13th century, featuring numerous statues of deities. Set in the rural Kadri Hills some 4 km (2.6 mi) away from the densely populated Mangalore, the ancient site offers a picturesque scene of natural beauty.

  • Very beautiful ancient temple. Serene and peaceful. Avoid weekends and Mondays and special festival days if you are not a crowd lover. Parking is available. The temple is in different levels. If you have senior citizens or people who are unable to climb stairs, you could seat them down in the ground level itself. Don't forget to see different deities in all levels. At the top most level, the green giant Hanuman idol is a favourite amongst kids.
  • devotional place. good n cool atmosphere wit 7 lake . we can also see big hanuman statue. lots of tree around. 😍😍😍
  • Historical place. Seemingly good architectural view. There is also a man made tank where you can sit and wet your feet. A feelgood place.
  • This is the best and big temple with a beautiful back ground in Mangalore. Architecture is very traditional and good. Ganesha temple and iyappa temple are inside this temple. Here We have to remove our shirts and follow the tradition. The time we spent in this temple is very peaceful.
  • Surely a nice place to visit however the temple is closed between 1.00pm to 3.30 pm. Ensure to avoid visit during this time
