That was Thursday afternoon New Year First January of 2015, we were in Birthi, Salekeri. The place is about 20 km and visited the temple in the evning and got Lord Vinayaka's blessings. On our way back, we visited Sumangali-Sudhakars at Parampalli, Saligrama and returned home.
Kumbhashi, about nine kms to the south of Kundapur, is famous for its two Temples, namely, Mahalingeshwara and Anegudde Vinayaka. The name of the place is said to be derived from Kumbhasura who was slain here. Inscriptions mention this place as Kumbha-Kashi. It is one of the seven places of pilgrimage in the region called "Parashurama Srishti" or the creation of Saint Parashurama. Anegudde means elephant (Aane) hillock (Gudde) and it is the abode of the elephant god, Sri Vinayaka.
