Hidden amid picturesque rivers, mountains, and forests lies Kukke Subramanya Temple, an opulent holy site dedicated to the lord of all serpents. Pilgrims have to cross the nearby Kumaradhara River in order to cleanse themselves and receive permission to view the temple's divine idol and perform rituals. See the Garuda pillar between the entrance and the sanctorum--a birdlike figure that glows in silvery white and grants protection to devotees circumambulating it. Once you pass both the inner and outer hall, you'll reach the sanctorum of Sri Subrahmanya, where devotees offer ritual worship. Reach the easily accessible temple via train, bus, or taxi.
