Kukke Subramanya Temple, Subramanya

4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Subramanya
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Temple dedicated to Lord Subrahmanya - the Hindu God of War and Protection. The place can be covered when one visits other places in Western Ghats and is covered in most of the tourist packages. One can collect souvenirs from the roads adjoining the temple. A very peaceful place to experience divine blessings.
  • Beautiful place with temple, hill, rivers and forest. Friendly temple priests will tell you whatever you need to know about the temple and proceedings. If you love the rain, come during the monsoon season and experience fresh air, clouds passing by the mountain and a cool atmosphere.
  • One of the many spiritual places in western ghats. Well maintained, and best road connectivity. Enjoy the western ghats scenic view if you are driving car or riding bike.
  • Nice temple with Good environment. Covered by forest and very religious place. I liked it. Pooja programme will be done very nicely. The elephant in the temple plays Bell during Pooja.👌
  • One of the best Hindu temples in Karnataka which is amidst greenery all around. Food and Accommodation is available for different categories. Sarpa-samskara is famously done here. One day stay is recommended to appreciate the temple and its surroundings. Bathing in the Kumaradhara river is a good experience.
