Annegudde temple enshrines the majestic image of Lord Ganesha known here as Siddhi Vinayaka , one who grants all wishes of devotees.
The word Annegudde means elephant hill and the name rightly suits the elephant God's shrine.
One can see the idol of Lord Ganesha right from the entrance as the idol is kept on a raised platform in a spacious hall.The temple is well lit and is kept neat and clean . The temple is small but the sprawling grounds surrounding the temple with tall shade providing trees gives a nice ambiance to the pilgrims.
Photography is strictly prohibited inside the temple hence I could get only a few photos of this temple.
The temple is in the village Kumbakshi on the Mangalore - Udupi highway . Facing the temple is the sea and pilgrims never miss this temple, those who head for Udupi Sri Krishna temple or Murudeshawar Temple. Shall be posting soon on these two temples.
How to reach- Udupi/ Mangalore - the nearest railway stations.
Airport is at Mangalore.
Accommodation- Good hotels are at Mangalore .
Many buses ply from Mangalore town to Kumbakshi.
