The extent

The Durgalaya of Kunjaru is known to be the Presiding Temple of the ‘Bali Saagara Maagane’. The people spread across the twelve Maaganes worship the Goddess as their Presiding Deity. Each Maagane is a group of villages and the extent of the temple spreading up to twelve such Maaganes shows its Antiquity and Precedence in this region.

The people from Kannaraadi, Undaaru, Innanje, Kalmanje, Palli, Belle, Biliyaaru, Paaje, Kurkaalu and the adjacent areas are the traditional devotees and the followers of the temple. The devotees from these areas regularly visit the temple for worship. Special samaradhane is offered to Durgadevi of Kunjaru whenever the Bhuta kolas are to be performed in the villages like Acchada, Biliyaaru, Belle, Edaneeru, Paaje and Kurkaalu.

Durgadevi of Kunjarugiri (installed by Lord Parashurama) is the Kuladevata for the decendents of Jamadagni Gotra. The ‘Aithals’, ‘Adigas’, ‘Shastris’, ‘Somayajis’ of Kundapura too worship the Goddess as their Kuladevata.

Apart from this, most of the pilgrims visiting Udupi Shree Krishna Matha come here to have Darshana of the Goddess on Kunjarugiri. The Swamijis of AshTha Mathas visit the Durgalaya and Worship the Goddess before ascending the Paryaya PeeTham at Shree Krishna Matha, Udupi. Thus Kunjaru is revered as a Theertha Kshetra and is considered as an important place for pilgrimage.
