Bhagamandala, also known as Bhagundeshwara Kshetra, is situated about 39 km from Madikeri in Karnataka at the confluence of the three rivers Kaveri, Kanike and Suiyothi. The Bhandeshwara temple is built in a mixed style of Keralan and Nepali architecture with multi-layered roofs. During the annual festival that falls in October/November thousands of oil lamps are lit in this temple and other three temples at the site which are dedicated to Ganapathy, Subramanya and Vishnu.
