Nagamangala Temple, Near Mysore

Nagamangala is a small agricultural town located in Mandya district which is 70 kms from Mysore. We reached that temple by car from Mysore.It took around one and half hours to reach the Nagamangala town. As we reached there too early,we had to wait for two hours for the temple to be opened. So it is advisable to reach the temple around 9am if anybody is interested to visit there. But it was heard that temple will be opened in the early morning during festival days.

Sri soumiya keshava swamy (vishnu) is the main deity of the temple. The temple is well known for Raghu-Kethu parigara pooja. It is one of the ancient temples with attractive architectural stone works. The central mandapam in front of the main deity sannidhi has an intricately carved stone structure. In that we can see Adhiseshan engraved in the middle of the structure. Around that Adhiseshan 108 conches (shanku) are engraved.

Head of the Adhiseshan is believed as Raghu and tail is believed as Kethu. Those who wants to do Raghu-Kethu parigara pooja are asked to stand beneath the Adhiseshan. There some parigara poojas are performed by the priest. This parigara pooja is believed to overcome problems like Santana Bhagya, mental illness, delay in marriage and overall well being of a person.
