Historical temple. Shakti( powerful) devate( godess). Devotees first watch godess in mirror, post which allowed to watch directly. There is story history on kolaramma & Mahishasura.

This is an ancient temple dedicated to Goddess Durga and Saptamatrikas. The temple is more than 1000 years old. The temple is architecturally rich and is constructed in Dravidian style. It is well maintained. We visited during the evening time over the weekend. It was moderately crowded.

Walkable from the Someshwara temple and opens earlier than the latter in the evening, so visited this during the time the latter was readying to open. Like many other temples in the region, compelling architecture makes it a must visit for folks from all beliefs and faiths.

It was a great experience visiting this place. Its a simple temple but well maintained. The deity's idol is quite impressive. We met tourist mitra there, a lady who told us about the temple and took us to someshwara temple also. She is employed by Karanataka tourism. A must visit place

Surprised to see this listed above someshwara temple in tripadvisor. Based on the ranking visited this temple first, but quite disappointed. It's small compared to someshwara temple, less work, not so well maintained. Can have a quick look and go if you are visiting someshwara temple.
