Kadri Manjunath Temple - Review
The Kadri Manjunatha Temple is located in Mangalore in district of Kadri in Karnataka. It is a square temple with 9 tanks and is located on the foothills of the highest mountain of Karnataka. The construction of the temple dates back to the 11th century.
The earliest reference of it is the epigraphy done here during the 10th century. It is written there that King Kundavarma Bupendra of the Alupas Dynasty caused the establishment of the Lokeshwara Statue in the Kadarika Temple. Kadarika is the earliest name and the name Kadri is due to the influence of Buddhism here.
Shri Krishna Janmashtami is the main festival here as Lord Krishna is the prime deity. The acts of the childhood of Lord Krishna where he stole butter and curd are enacted on this day. A pot filled with butter or curd is hung high from somewhere with a rope and young men and children form human pyramids and then try to reach the top and break it. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Mangaluru Itinerary 3 Days.

Kadri Manjunath Temple, Mangaluru Reviews
I feel weird rating this temple! However this is the most beautiful place. Its peaceful, serene and devine. There's natural lakes to dip in. Mainly a Shiva (Manjunatha) temple. Lunch is provided. Love to just quietly sit here in the evenings.
An Excellent ancient temple. It gave me peace of mind . We stayed there for nearly half an hour. At exactly 12 noon there was Mayamangalarathy. There is also another Sri Ayappa Temple in the same complex which is also great. Good parking place is available. Canara bank ATM situated nearby. Some juice centers and toy shop are around. Overall a good visit.
Peace place for devotees Every day is lunch time 11 a.m-2 o'clock noon Must visit
One of the best place to visit in mangalore. Everyday lunch prasadam will be available at noon. Big temple with beautiful view located at a centre of the city. The big hanuman statue is one the main attraction here. Kadri park is located beside the temple. It has temple pond.
Nice place to visit in MANGALORE. Such a pleasant environment.
