|The temple at Talacauvery and the temple tank|
It was when I was doing my masters that we had gone to Bhagmandala in Coorg* to do a media survey there. After a day of hard work, we drove towards the Brahmagiri Hill on the slopes of which lies Talakaveri, the spot believed to be the origin of the Cauvery River.
The temple here further sanctifies the holy site. In front of the temple is a tank that is said to house the spring from which the Cauvery river takes source. They say the river then flows underground a little distance down the hill before it surfaces again and flows through Karnataka and Tamilnadu.
If you visit this Talakaveri make it a point to climb up hill beside the temple, for a view of the hills around. I am told that you will also get to see the Bhagmandala town. The evening that we were there, it was raining and there was fog too so we didn't really get to see much.
FYI - Talacauvery from Wikipedia
*in the state of Karnataka, India
