The Kaveri in Kodagu


The Kaveri has its source at the foot of the Brahmagiri hills at a place called Talakaveri in Kodagu (Coorg) district of Karnataka.
Every October, usually on the 16th or 17th, on a day known as Tulasankramana, a spring starts bubbling, signalling the beginning of the month-long festival of Tulasangam. The waters of the spring fill up a large rectangular tank called Pushkarni.
A large crowd of devotees gathers to watch the spring come to life. A loud cheer goes up when this happens and then there is no holding back the crowd. The pilgrims break the barricades and swarm all over the tank eager to take a holy dip and to collect some of the water to take home. Worshippers then throng the tiny shrine, little more than a cell, to offer oblations to the river goddess.
Pilgrims also worship at the Agasteeswara temple a few metres uphill, before toiling up to the peak of the Brahmagiri hills, an ascent of 90 m from the Talakaveri pond.

Dimdima is the Sanskrit word for ‘drumbeat’. In olden days, victory in battle was heralded by the beat of drums or any important news to be conveyed to the people used to be accompanied with drumbeats.
