Kadri Manjunath Temple, Mangaluru Reviews - Write a Review
A great temple situated in a serene atmosphere. The temple has the one of the finest bronze statue of Shiva known as Trilokeshwara. There are many deities around the temple and there is a separate shrine for Ganesha.
A historic place tied to Natha Sampradaya. Used to be a Buddhist temple before that. Beautiful spot although modernization (concretization) has marred the place a little.
Very peacefull atmosphere and a well maintained temple. The gneiss stone floorings and granite masonry give aesthetic pleasure . A great sense of positivity adds to it's tranquility
Most peaceful place in Mangalore. Away from the crowd and traffic.. a lot of shabarimala devotees start their Yatra from here. The central Shiva temple is surrounded by Ganesh, Durga, Ayyappa and Hanuman temples. An old statue of trilokeshwar dating back to 11th century is present next to the sanctum sanctorum. Almost a hundred steps way leads to a Hanuman statue. Also has an alternate entrance which joins near kadri park.
Feels divine ,its one of the oldest temple of Dakshina Kannada “OM NAMAH SHIVAYA “
