The temple of Manjunatheshwara on the slopes of Kadri is an extremely wonderful and famous sanctuary in Mangalore. It is said to be worked amid the tenth or eleventh century. It was changed over to an entire stone structure amid the fourteenth century. The icon of Lord Manjunathaswamy of the sanctuary is called as most seasoned of the South Indian sanctuaries. It is trusted that Parashurama who was living in Sahyadri, slaughtered the kshathriyas who were unfeeling and given the terrains to Kashyapa. He appealed to Lord Shiva for a place to live. Ruler Shiva guaranteed Parashurama that on the off chance that he played out an atonement at Kadali kshethra, Lord Shiva would resurrect as Manjunatha for the advancement of the world. According to Shiva's requests Parashurama tossed his hatchet into the ocean and made a place for his retribution. Respecting Parashurama's petitions Lord Shiva appeared to him as Manjunatha with Goddess Parvathi and remained at Kadri for the advancement of the world. According to the requests of Manjunatha the sapthakoti manthras turn into the seven theerthas.
