It is an Important religious place. It is the birth place of sacred river Cauvery, 46 km from Madikeri. A small shrine with a beautifully decorated silver Shiva linga marks the spot where the mighty river originates. On Tula Sankramana day, which usually falls on October 17th each year, thousands flock to Talacauvery to witness a sudden upsurge of water in the spring, which then bubbles over. Near the temple stands Brahmagiri peak which offers panoramic views of the mountains.
