Sri Gavi Gangadhareswara Temple

The temple also has a rare, beautiful idol of Agni, the God of fire. On January 14th each year, on full moon day, a ray of light passes through the arch between the horns of the stone bull that is outside the temple and lights up the idol inside. The temple built during the Ganga dynasty rule of Karnataka.

It is situated in the small town of Gavipuram and hence is also referred to as the Sri Gavi Gangadhareswara Temple. On that day a ray of sunlight passes through an arch between the horns of stone bull, that stands outside the temple, and lights up the idol inside. There is a small but deep cave inside the temple, after a short distance the cave forks out into two branches. 

It is said that lord Shiva's idol (Linga) originated naturally in the cave and was discovered by a sage in the early 15th Century. This religious site is regularly visited by a large number of devotees throughout the year.
