Kukke Subramanya Temple, Subramanya

(260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very spiritual place and one of it's kind in India. Well maintained & strict discipline followed. Gents have to remove their shirts & be bare chested for Darshan according to Hindu tradition.
  • Temple ; Pooja everything fine. Little bit difficulty in getting hotel accommodation. U will see " no rooms" in plenty. Lot of middlemen paying game in getting rooms.
  • "Well maintained temple. Beautiful place to visit. Temple is surrounded by beautiful scenery"
  • This place is spiritual, and beautiful all long the year. And provides good food and affordable acomodation. No need of reading more reviews, just start packing and travel
  • Happy to see subramanya swami here where all your sarpa dosha issues in your kndali will be solved here . You will have some vibes once you see diety coz he is surrounded by snakes. Mostly Dancing elephant and must visit temple in South India.
