Mangaladevi Temple - Review

In the 10th century there lived the most famous king of the Alupu Dynasty named Kundavarma, who ruled on Tulunadu. Mangalore was his capital. At that time there reached two sages from Nepal named Machhendranatha and Goraknatha. The place where they crossed the river to come here is named as ‘Gorakdandu’. They chose a place on the banks of the Nethravati River, where the Sage Kapila was known to live.

Hearing the news of their arrival, the King Kundavarma personally went to meet them and introduced himself as the king. He provided them with all the comfort and help with all due respect. They were very pleased with the king and told him that his land was very holy and that many holy activities had been performed on this land earlier on. The king was surprised after knowing about these unheard stories and especially when the sages told him about the temple of Mangaladevi that was built by Parashurama and which existed here many years ago. They asked the king to allot them some land so that they could make the place a center for their activities.

The king was further told to dig the earth on some specified places to find the buried idol of Goddess Mangala devi and rebuild her temple and also place an idol of Nagaraja along with the Goddesses’ idol so that it could protect her. The king followed their instructions word by word and thus was formed the Mangala Devi Temple.

It was very renowned as it was known to grant the wishes of all devotees and especially maidens who prayed with devotion there.
