Kukke Subramanya Travel Guide

Lapped up in the sumptuous teemingness of the beauty of the nature, the hamlet of Subrahmanya rests in the Sullia Taluk in South Kannada with a sanctitude, which very few tourist destinations of India can boast of. The hamlet is situated on the banks of the River ‘Kumaradhara’. In the centre of the village, the temple of Lord Subrahmanya is placed. Nature exhibits herself in all her unheralded beauty in the rivers, forests and mountains which the temple is encircled by.

Subrahmanya has quite a few temples within close propinquity but the main temple is Subrahmanya Temple which includes the Snake God Vasuki and Lord Subrahmanya. The temple is set versus the Kumara Parvatha hills and pilgrims have to cross the nearby Kumaradhara River and acquire a holy dip in it before giving their obedience to the God. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Kumaraswamy referred this place after killing the demon rulers Taraka, Shoorapadmasura and others in a war and Lord lapped his Shakti Ayudha (a battle-axe in the shape of a bayonet) in this River. From then onwards, the River is famous as Kumaradhara.

Subrahmanya used to be visited as Kukke Pattana in the past. In the ‘Shankara Vijaya’ Anandagiri celebrates that Sri Shankaracharya camped here for a few days throughout his Digvijaya (religious expedition). Shankaracharya denoted to this place as ‘Bhaje Kukke Lingam’ in his ‘Subrahmanya Bhujangaprayata Stotram’. Kukke Subrahmanya is a religious attraction and also a tourist spot. One will delight nature’s beauty and the treks through lush green forests and hills.
