Haalu Malleshwara temple where Udhbava Linga exists:

Emanated Haalu Malleshwara Swamy Lingu at anthillon tank bund

There is small temple of Haalu Malleshwara Swamy behind Shree Vaidyanatheshwara Swamy’s temple and at a depth on the tank bund. The lingam of this temple is not installed but emanated from ground (Udbhava Linga). It is said that there was a thick forest in the area of Haalu Malleshwara Temple. An ant hill existed at this place. The formers of Mallappana Halli, a nearby village, used to take their cattle for grazing to this place. A cow among the cattle used to sprinkling milk into the anthill. The villages after witnessing this wonder dug the anthill and found a lingam of about 6” long. Then the people built small temple which in due course became famous as Haalu Malleshwara Swamy.

 


According to another legend, the sages who lived here long ago saw through their divine sight a Linga inside the ground. They dug and found the lingam and they dug deeper they found milk overflowing. Accordingly they named this place as Haalu Malleshwara Swamy and built a small temple and worshipped.

 


Elephants in group:

In ancient times this place was covered with thick forest. This was evident from group of elephants which visit this place from other nearby forests in search of fodder following a definite route to Areyuru Village. Such elephants swim in Areyuru irrigation tank and return after 2-3 days without causing any trouble to people.
