About Talakaveri

Cauvery is claimed to be originated from this lovely place in Talakaveri Coorg, the sacred and beautiful Talacauvery. Interestingly not only is the river an integral part of the place but also of its name 'Tala' 'Cauvery'. The lush meadows layering the beautiful hills are one among the rare sights to behold across India. Located at a high altitude of over twelve hundred metres, the wonderful site is naturally located on the misty ranges of Brahmagiri. Talacauvery is one of the several best places to visit in Coorg.

Legend

Cauvery has been a muse to writers like N. Raghunathan and Shankar Ram along with various local singers and composers. Mother Cauvery's shrine is sacredly placednear her birth site, 'Brahma Kundike'. The legends doing rounds locally claim that converting himself into the body of a crow, Lord Ganeshaspilt the pot of the meditating sage Agasthya. He has concealed Cauvery within that pot. That was how Cauvery took birth as she flowed through the lands of Talacauvery. The site of the famous Shiva-linga at a height is believed to be the spot where the Hindu Lord Shiva himself confronted sage Agasthya. All these legends add a fine historic touch to the place.

Major attractions

Talacauvery is a pilgrimage which offers believers and worshippers from across the world a range of legendary ancient temples and shrines. Along with the ages-oldShiva-linga found here, the Hindu lords Vinayaka and the legendary Agastheeshwara have been honoured by the shrines built here during ancient times. The holy Triveni Sangam at Bhagamandala is the holy confluence of Cauvery, Sujyoti and Kannike which make it a sacred site. All these counts among the key attractions here.

One among the greatest attractions here is the auspicious festival of Tula Sankramana. This October festival is said to be the birthday of Goddess Kaveri as she gave her darshan on Earth for the first time ever. Brahma Kundike's holy waters are flooded with worshippers which are breathtakingly decorated with lighting diyas as the sacred river suddenly appears momentarily during this time and then returns back to its origin. The mystery behind this unusual yearly event is still unsolved which make Talacauvery even more interesting place to visit in Karnataka.
