History of Bhagamandala Sri Bhagananda Maharshi was a great devotee of Lord Subramanyam and Lord Shiva and decided to engage in severe penance till he gets to seek their blessings. After years of devoting every waking moment of his life in the prayers of the lord, the time finally came when his prayers were answered. Lord Subramanyam blessed him and manifested the place with a stone in his form, and Lord Shiva invoked a Shiva Linga at the location and promised his infinite presence in it. During the period between 1785 and 1790, the area of Bhagamandala was under the reign of the king, Tipu Sultan. After burning and severely destroying the temple, he named it Afesalabad. However, in 1790, when King Dodda Vira Rajendra took over the entire area into an independent Kodagu kingdom, he restored its rightful name back upon it. Places To Visit In Bhagamandala Bhagandeshwara Temple:Resting at an elevation of about 898 meters, the Bhagamandala accommodates the Sri Bhagandeshwara Temple, a divinely famous tourist attraction. Although primarily a Lord Shiva temple, it also contains idols of Lord Subramanyam and Lord Ganesha. Other than being a beautifully built temple in an astounding backdrop, it is host to hundreds to pilgrims and devotees that not only come here to seek the blessings of the lord but also to connect with him spiritually. Praying at this temple brims you with the divinity of God and the much-needed peace and calm lost in our day to day lives.
