The Kukke Subrahmanya Temple is a famous Hindu temple that is located in Karnataka, India. Lord Kartikeya, who is the lord of all serpents, is worshipped here as Lord Subrahmanya; and the temple provides tranquillity and peace like no other. It is located in the heart of the village of Subrahmanya, in Dakshina Kannada, and is surrounded by lush nature on all sides. The mountain Kumara Parvatha overlooks the temple adding a mystical charm. If seen geographically, Shesha Parvatha, a mountain shaped like a six-headed cobra, adjacent to Kumara Parvatha seems to protect the temple.
The Kukke Subrahmanya Temple is considered to be the abode of 'nagas', and pooja or prayer here is offered to Lord Subrahmanya, along with the serpent king Vasuki. Devotees also believe that the holy bath here in the Kumaradhara Thirtha and Madesnana eradicates dreaded diseases like leprosy. According to devotees, diseases related to the skin even get cured here. The temple is also considered to be the ultimate place to attain salvation for all those who are suffering from any kind of 'naga doshas'. This is the ideal place for Naga Dosha Pariharam (remedy), by performing Sarpa Samskara Pooja, Ashlesha Pooja and other such rituals. In fact, a lot of devotees from all across the country visit the temple for precisely this purpose.
