A small, beautiful town, located in the Taluka District of Karnataka, is Singandur. Locally known also as "Sigandooru", the city is well known for its Shri Chowdeshwari Temple that is dedicated to the Goddess Chowdeshwari. Present on the banks of the Sharavati River, the temple is a must-visit for many devotees from all over the world. The Chowdamma Devi, as the goddess is referred to, is an ethereal being who punishes thieves for stealing and protects her devotees from losing items to thievery. Surrounded by lush greens and the Linganamakki dam, on three sides, the Sigandur village is encircled by the Holy Sharavati River.
It is a common holy practice for visitors to bathe in the sacred river Sharavati, during the annual festival held in the month of January. This sacred village is one of its kind since no other kshetras offer this form of worship. A significant item called the "board of Shri Deviya Rakshane Ide", once placed in a home, will provide the goddess's pure protection of objects, buildings, land, and gardens as well as the people themselves.
Getting to Sigandur Temple, you need to travel across the river Sharavathi, by a launch that is a regular service. It's only INR 1 per head, and you can even take private cars or even buses on the launch to reach Sigandur. Once crossed, there are jeeps available for INR 20 per head that will take visitors to the temple.
