The little known mathas in Bangalore


In an earlier article, I had written about the Dwithieya Mantralaya at Honnalli which is near Shimoga. There is a Rayara Matha there and the adjoining village of Bidaralli is famous as the home of Bidarahalli Srinivasacharya.
There is one more village by that name and it is near Bangalore. It is near Krishnaraja Pura (KR Puram) on the outskirts of Bangalore. Bidarahalli is approximately four klilometres from KR Puram.
One has to take left at Aavala Halli. (KR Puram –Bidarahalli cross or Aavalahalli-Hosakote road) to reach the matha.
There is a Madhva Kanva Matha with a small function hall (can be used for  performing engagement or naming ceremony or similar small functions).
You can contact Girish (son of the archaka there) for any details:
9341073435  or Jayateertha Joshi – 9945541600.
Similarly, there is a Raghavendra Swamy Matha on Magadi Road in Bangalore whish is not all that well patronized.Bangalore has the maximum number of Raghavendra Swamy mathas in India. However, not all of them are well-known.
Some like the matha at Magadi road need more patronage.
Sevas and poojes are conducted at the Magadi Road matha  everyday as per Madhwa Paddathi. The Udupi Krishna idol is with Rayara Brindavana in the sanctum, which is very rare.
The Pratistapana of  the Brindavana was performed in 1982 by  Visveshvara Theerta of Pejawar Matha in 1982.
You can also have the Darshana of  Lakshmi Venkateshwara, Pranadevaru, Rudradevaru, Vishwambara, Parvathi and  Navagraha in the same temple.
If any further information is required, devotees and visitors may contact Mr. Rajendra T.J., 91-9886242922 or 080-23386463.
