Why to visit Kateel Durgaparameshwari Temple

This is the place to go if you're looking for a spiritual retreat in the city.

According to legend, after Goddess Shakti destroyed the demons Shumbha and Nishumbha, Arunasura, their minister, fled and gathered more demons. He ascended to the throne of these demons and began wreaking destruction on the planet. The rains were stopped by the Gods in order to put an end to the demons. However, because people on the earth were starving, it created even greater devastation.

The temple's most prominent feature, which draws big crowds, is its location on an islet in the middle of River Nandini, within a tranquil natural setting. The temple, which is dedicated to Goddess Durga Parameshwari and is located 27 kilometres from Mangalore, is devoted to her.
