Devadasi system has been a prevalent one in the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The tradition which started during the early 7th century still consumes a lot of young women quite rampantly. Despite several NGOs and other organizations working constantly to exterminate this tradition from being followed, there are still a lot of women getting consumed by the wrath of this system.

Manjunath Doddamani Gajendragad 3

Manjunath Doddamani Gajendragad

 

The temple is almost a century old and has been revered to be one of the most powerful places for getting rid of black magic spells. You can get to see ladies carrying the idols of Goddess Renuka Devi on their heads and seeking alms throughout the way. The temple premises is filled with shop-keepers selling Puja items and also one can witness people carrying the local food like Jowar-Roti and curd  in a huge basket which can be quite tempting.

Manjunath Doddamani Gajendragad

 

The temple queue can be unexpectedly long especially during Tuesdays and Fridays hence, expecting to get the blessings from the Goddess can be quite a challenging task. There are several other temples here which can be visited during your visit to Saundatti and they are Puradeshwara temple, Ankeshwara temple and also the Saundatti Fort. Well, this is one such place which is dedicated to one of the most powerful Goddess but also a place where the plague of following the Devadasi system still exist!
