It will truly inspire you to visit the place and seek the blessings of the Lord. Belief in Him will surely fulfill all the wishes and aspiration of the devotee.

 

As it is rightly said , “ If a man says that Himalaya mountain exists , can another man deny its existence because he has never seen it ? Obviously not !! . Similarly , many sages have seen and realized GOD., Shankaracharya , Vidyaranya, Sadashiva Brahmendra etc., are only some of the thousand who have had a direct experience of GOD. So it is impossible to deny GOD’s existence, merely because we are unable to see him , due to darkness of ignorance which covers our eyes ” .

His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Chandrashekara Bharati Swamiji

The Holy Place

The Holy place of Kallahalli is surrounded by row of mountains and is filled with greenery of Coconut groves, Jack fruit and mango trees and looks golden by the amazing bright bananas. The whole area is fragmented by Tulsi plants. Towards the east , Bilikal hills and Biligiri Ranga hills ; Towards the west , Bananthi Maari hills ; towards south Kabbalu Durga; towards north , Ramadevara Hills . Like this Kallahalli is surrounded by hills and the river arkavathi flows very nearby to the village. The Lord stands here to bless us in the midst of it.

The Temple

The temple is famously known for its Monolithic Idol, which is just the same way in TIRUPATHI or BILIGIRI RANGA HILLS. We find both in TIRUPATHI and BR Hills the idol of the Lord is “KATI HASTHA DHAARI” which means the Lord is posing with this hand on his waist. But in KALLAHALLI , we can see the Lord as “GADHA DHAARI” which means , having Gadha in his hand. The most amazing thing to be noted is that tll these three idols have been made pois by the Tapas or the meditation of VASISHTA MAHARSHI & hence the name as “VASISHTA MAHARSHI KSHETRA.” ...
