Mangaladevi Temple at Mangalore in Karnataka

Mangaladevi Temple is dedicated to Goddess Mangala Devi – a manifestation of Mother Goddess. The temple is located around 2 km from city center in Mangalore in Karnataka. The murti that is worshipped in the temple is Swayambhu and there is a linga representing Shiva and Shakti and Dharapatra. A Nagaraja Shrine is located in the premises.

Legend has it that Sages named Machhendranatha and Gorakanatha once visited the place and told the king of the region, Kundavarma, that the region was blessed with Goddess Mangaladevi and she is present here.

The sages asked the king to dig a particular spot. Shivling and Dharapatra, symbolizing Mangaladevi, were recovered from the spot.

Parashurama, the fifth incarnation of Bhagavan Vishnu, had consecrated the original temple.

King Kundavarma built a grand temple here in the 10th century on the advice of the sages.

The temple attained special significance as Mother Magaladevi fulfills the wishes of women. Women who worship the Goddess observing Mangaladharavrata (Swayamvara Parvathi) will have their wishes fulfilled. It is believed that they get good husbands with the blessing of Goddess.

The most important person of Kadri Yogirajmutt visit Mangaladevi temple on the first day of Kadri Temple festival and offer prayer and silk cloth to the Goddess and take her blessings.

The most important festivals in the temple are Navratri, Deepotsava in Kartik month, annual temple festival in March and Prathishta Dina on May 17.
