  • Shree Chennakeshava Temple is located in the heart of Sullia town beside the State Highway connecting Mangaluru with Mysuru city. The temple is the most ancient temple of about 850 years old attracting a large number of devotees from all over the places. It is believed that the Jain rulers who had ruled the most of the parts of Tulunadu for many years known as “Ballal’s”, had built Shree Chennakeshava Temple at “Panne Beedu” which is about 5 Kms from the present temple complex. Here at Panne Beedu, there are sanctums of Shree Bhagavathi and “Nalku Sthaana Chavadi”. The idol of Lord Shree Chennakeshava at the temple is made up off “Panchaloha” and is offered with poojas and sevas daily 3 times a day. Annual festival, daily pooja rituals are offered to the Lord. In the inner yard of the temple, there is a sanctum of Goddess Shree Durgaparameshwari and Chennigaraya who are considered to be the sub deities at this temple. In the outer yard, there is a sanctum of Anjaneya to which special poojas and sevas are offered daily.
