Tourists visiting Madikeri visit Talacauvery for a well rounded tour. The best way to experience Talacauvery is by booking a Half Day Talacauvery Tour by Private Cab. It takes just about 5 hours. Nestled in Brahmagiri Hills, Talacauvery is the source of the river Kaveri. The point from which the river emerges also has a temple dedicated to the Goddess Kaveriamma. The temple is located right next to the holy tank.
Some tourists also climb 400 extra steps to enjoy the magnificent bird’s eye view of Coorg’s forests and misty hills. The best time to visit Talacauvery is at the onset of monsoon when the spring of water is best visible!

Talacauvery Temple is dedicated to Goddess Cauveramma Devi Thayi. The temple’s special attraction is the Brahma Kundike or Tirth Kundike. A small spring of water originates at this point which is considered holy by devotees and believers. The shrine has been built just across the Tirth Kundike.
Devotees can be seen taking a dip in Talacauvery and atoning for their sins. There are two temples in this area – one dedicated to Lord Shiva and another to Lord Ganesha. The Shiva linga is believed to have been brought here by Sage Agastya. The holy festival of Tulasankaramma is celebrated at the temple every October with great reverence.
Bhagamandala Temple is another pilgrimage spot in Talacauvery. The temple stands majestic Cauvery river’s upstream stretches. The confluence of rivers Cauvery, Kannike and Sujyoti,happens at this spot and Bhagamandala Temple is situated on one of the banks of this confluence.
Devotees take a holy dip at the confluence before proceeding to pay their respects at the temple. Like Talacauvery Temple, Bhagamandala Temple sees a stream of devotees flowing in on Tula Sankramana in October every year.
You can visit Triveni Sangam while returning from Talacauvery. As the name suggests, triveni Sangam is the spot of holy confluence of three rivers – Cauvery, Kannike and the mythical river of Sujyoti. Keeping in mind the spiritual importance of the spot, several temples we built here including the Bhagandeshwara Temple and Bhagamandala Temple.
The temples have been dedicated to Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha and Lord Narayana. The temples have been beautified with copper tiled roofs, murals painted with vegetable dye, wall paintings and wooden idols. The best time to visit the temple is during Tula Sankranti.
