Adargunchi Doddappa temple was known but unseen. I had heard the temple had a big statue of Mahaveera. Somehow we missed it during the visit to Shambulingesvara temple at Kundgol. I was thinking of driving up one of the weekends just for this. Then a wedding invitation put the plan in action; we were to attend a friend's wedding at Karadgi, another historical place.

We left home after breakfast. With Ashok at the wheel, we reached Adargunchi quickly, his driving was faster than any of the other cab drivers. Adargunchi is a small village located on the state highway connecting NH4 to Kundgol. As long as you ask for Doddappana Gudi anyoen can guide you, its right next to the bus-stand. At the temple a middle age man tagged on guiding us in and showing us around. That's Doddappana Devastana and our guide (see inset). I'd promised him to put his picture on the net :-) A pair or feet at the temple entrance.
For those interested in visiting these places, this map might com handy.
