Day 3 : We had to go to Kapu beach via Lalbag . Because we had enough time , we decided to go to Kadri Manjunath Temple which is nearly 3 km from Valencia and has direct bus from Father Muller's road . The temple of Manjunatheshwara on the hills of Kadri is a very beautiful and popular temple in Mangalore. It is said to be built during the 10th or 11th century. It was converted to a complete stone structure during the 14th century.The idol of Lord Manjunathaswamy of the temple is called as oldest of the South Indian temples. Photography inside temple is strictly prohibited . We could be part of Aarti (Hindu God's prayer including praising word's for God and ancient instruments).I really love south indian instrumental devotional songs . It has some kinda spark and energy in it . In front of the temple, at an height there are a number of water ponds. There's a garden surrounding the ponds. When one walks down from there in front of the temple is a huge lightpole. During karthika maasa, deepothsava is held here. There are statues of Machendranath, Gorakanath, Shringinath, Lokeshwara, Manjushri, and Buddha in the temple.
Manjunath Temple: Situated in Kadri hills, dedicated to Lord Shiva. Don;t forget to see 7 ponds in the temple. Apart from the main temple inside the premises there is a huge idol of Lord Hanuman (one has to climb stairs to reach).
