Nestled on the hills of South Coorg, Bhagamandala is both a tourist spot as well as a place of pilgrimage. Bhagamandala is at the confluence of two rivers with a third subterranean one also supposedly joining in. On the river bank are temples dedicated to the Hindu trinity – Shiva worshipped as Bhagandeshwara, Brahma (along with an image of Subramanya) and Mahavishnu. Talacauvery, the source of the River Cauvery, is 7 km upstream.
