Thousand Pillar temple-Moodbidri, Karnataka

1000 pillar temple (ಸಾವಿರ ಕಂಬದ ಬಸದಿ in Kannada) is a 15th century temple located in Moodbidri, Karnataka. We had been there multiple times earlier, but visited again in Jan when I had been to Moodabidire for Koti Chennaya Kambala (buffalo race).

I am sharing some of the photos below. There are several Jain temples all over, but this one in Moodbidire is considered one of the finest of them.

There is a Rs 5 entry ticket. No extra ticket for Camera. This temple is about 2-3kms from the town Bus Stand. Take an auto or bus.
