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
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.
Very beautiful ancient temple. Serene and peaceful. Avoid weekends and Mondays and special festival days if you are not a crowd lover. Parking is available. The temple is in different levels. If you have senior citizens or people who are unable to climb stairs, you could seat them down in the ground level itself. Don't forget to see different deities in all levels. At the top most level, the green giant Hanuman idol is a favourite amongst kids.
Shri Manjunatha Swami temple with very old history . Has lots of small temples and a big Hanuman ideal on top of the hill. Good management. Free food for pilgrim's at every Saturday. 7 holy lakes are there. Everyone who visit Mangalore must once visit the temple. Your mind will bee free.
