Set of from Birthi in the morning...... first stop was at GUDDETTU, a Ganesha inside a huge stone..... nice temple, and number of priests take water from a vessel (koda), from the well...... and put inside Garbhagudi..... a seva called AAYARKODA......and blessings from the God.....
Next stop over was at KAMALASHILE, a distance of 45 km..... at the foot of western ghats, sharavathi river flowing by the side.......Brahmi Durgaparameshwari Temple......darshana, pooja and nice lunch .... courtesy of a devotee who performed Chandika Homa......
Another attraction is visit to a cave (Guhe).... about 2 km from the temple and on the hills........ walking down inside with torchlights......and quite a distance..... slippery, water from the spring..... and the birds inside (Baavali)..... and the stories...of sages stayed in there for several years......
Driving back to MANDARTHI...... another Goddess Temple.....visited..... short stop at Vishwanatha Udupa's house and then back to Birthi...... a day well spent.... Nalini's sister Vijaya was in the group.....
