Annapoorneshwari temple-Horanadu, Dakshin Kannada

The temple of Annapoorneshwari is situated in Horanadu, a quaint village  nestled in the forest range of Western ghats which is just 100 Kms from the town of Chikmaglur.

The scenic beauty of this place will mesmerise all. The hill ranges with  a lavish coat of greenery, the  veil of mist, the river Bhadra flowing by will have a calming effect on one's mind . Peace descends as soon as one sets his  foot here. The rest is done by the benevolent glance of Mother and one experiences pure bliss . A perfect place  for those are in search of spiritual retreats.

Goddess of this temple is  known as Adhyasakthyathmaka Annapoorneshwari and the idol of the Goddess stands tall decked from top to toe with gold . She is none other than Goddess Parvati incarnate. It is believed that whoever visits this temple would not go without food in their life time.

Anna means food or grains and poorna means perfect food. Serving Anna known as Annadanam is a daily  service in the temple and no devotee leaves this temple without partaking the prasad .
