Also known as the Saavira Kambada Basadi, this is a Jain temple, 1430, located in Moodabidri in Karnataka. It depicts the mighty past of the Jain rulers of Moodabidri. The Temple is dedicated to the 8th Tirthankar Chandraprabha, whose massive 8-foot idol is worshipped in the temple. Obviously, the temple’s talking point is its beautifully carved pillars, standing on mandapas, each narrating a different story of the past. The temple in itself is a 3-storeyed granite structure. It is a must-visit when in Karnataka.
Moodabidri, which gets its name from the abundance of bamboo trees (bidri), is about 30 kms from Mangalore, where one can find air, rail and road connectivity. The best time to visit is in the winter, from December to early February, when the air is cool and the humidity is decreased. There is no entry fee.
