Kukke Subramanya Temple :
Kukke Subramanya is a Hindu temple in the village of Subramanya in the Kadaba taluk (formerly Sullia taluk) of Karnataka’s Dakshina Kannada district. Kartikeya is worshipped as Subramanya, the Lord of All Serpents, in this temple. When the divine serpent Vasuki and other serpents were challenged by the Garuda, the epics stated that they sought shelter under Subramanya.
The famous mountain of Kumara Parvatha, which overlooks the temple, is a popular hiking destination for trekkers from all over South India. The Kumara Parvatha (a mountain shaped like a six-headed mythological serpent, adjacent to Kumara Parvatha) looks like a cobra with its open hood, as if defending the temple shrine of Lord Subramanya, and the Shesha Parvatha (a mountain shaped like a six-headed mythological serpent, adjacent to Kumara Parvatha) looks like a cobra with its open hood, as if protecting the temple shrine of Lord Subramanya. The kukke subramanya temple is surrounded by thick evergreen forests on the western slopes of the Ghats.
Kukke Subramanya Temple History :
According to legend, Lord Shanmukha arrived at Kumara Parvatha with his brother Ganesha and others after defeating the demon rulers Tharaka, Shurapadmasura, and their followers in a battle. Indra and his supporters welcomed him. Indra, overjoyed, requested that Lord Kumara Swamy embrace and marry his daughter Devasena, which the Lord readily agreed to. At Kumara Parvatha, the divine marriage took place on Margashira shudha shashti.Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, and other gods gathered for Shanmukha’s marriage and coronation ceremony, for which the waters of many holy rivers were carried. These Mahabhisheka waters flowed down to form Kumaradhara, a river that was later named after them. To escape Garuda’s attack, the great Shiva Bhakta and Serpent King Vasuki performed tapas in the Biladwara caves of Kukke Subrahmanya for years. Shanmuka gave Vasuki darshan after Lord Shiva assured him that he would remain as his parama bhakta in this position forever. As a result, the poojas performed for Vasuki or Nagaraja are simply poojas for Lord Subrahmanya.
