Thirtharameshwara temple, Honnali, Karnataka

How many Brahma temples have you visited? As such there're very few and I happened to visit one recently, near Shivamogga, Karnataka.

Sri Thirtharameshwara temple is located near Honnali, Karnataka (Davanagere district). We stopped by this temple for sometime.
Main attraction at this temple is the source of water, shown below. The water is pure and tasty, claimed to cure lot of illness and believed not to get spoiled over weeks when stored. The water is claimed to be coming from Kashi in Uttarpradesh and keeps flowing through out the year. Believing the source and divine powers is left to you, but quality of water is not questionable.

You may not wish to travel all the way from say Bengaluru to this place, but if you are visiting Honnali/Shivamogga and have some time to spare, you might wish to visit this temple.

Shrinidhi, thanks for the post. I heard about this temple recently and other than your post, there is hardly any information about it. Is this a very ancient temple? If you can briefly mention the history, I would really appreciate it.
