Ghati Subramanya Temple – Doddaballapur


Table of Contents


Ghati Subramanya Temple is 600 years old temple of Ghorpade rulers of Sandur who ruled parts of Bellary. It is the belief of devotees that childless couples making vows shall be blessed with children by the lord.

Once deity appeared in the dreams of the king by revealing the location of the idols. The king, with the help of the locals, found the idol of Subramanya Swamy and then ordered the construction of a temple around him.

Ghati is the place where Subramanya Swamy performed penance in the form of a snake. He did penance in these mountains before fighting with the demon Tharakasura. This is the same place where Lord Subramanya prayed Lord Narasimha Swamy to offer protection to the Naga family from Garuda. Garuda is the Vahana of Lord Vishnu, is known for his enmity towards the Snake family.
