Talakadu

Talakadu

An unforgettable Experience

Panihati Chida Dahi mahotsava – Grand festival celebrations, Maha Abhisheka, Kaveri Tirtha Snana (Holy Bath), Feast prasadam

A historic site, Talakad once had over 30 temples that today are buried in sand. Now it is a scenic and spiritual pilgrimage centre. Here the eastward flowing Kaveri river changes course and seems magnificently vast as here the sand on its banks spreads over a wide area

The name of the place is derived from two Kirāta twin brothers, Tala and Kādu, who, cutting down a tree which they saw wild elephants worshiping, discovered that it contained a Deity of Vishnu, and that the elephants were rishis formerly cursed. The tree was miraculously restored, all obtained mōksha and the place was named Tala-kādu, which was translated into Sanskrit as Dala-vana. Two stone images declared to represent the brothers are pointed out in front of the temple of Vaidyēsvara. The place was also called ‘Gajaranya kshetra’. Later, Lord Rāma is also said to have halted here on his expedition to Lanka.

Sripada Ramanujacharya during his sojourn in Karnataka, established five Vishnu temples of Lord Narayana known as Pancha Narayana Kshetrams. Talakad is one of the Pancha Narayana Kshetrams where the Keerthi Narayana temple was established and the presiding Deity in this temple is Keerthi Narayana.
