Narasimha Teertha

Couple of weeks back, I got a chance to visit Narasimha Theertha back again. It is just on the outskirts of MuLabagilu, Kolar District. Here's a photo of it I uploaded on India Water Portal Kannada: MuLabagilu Narasimha Teertha The place (which, as per the record there seems to have been a Gurukula) is probably more than 1600 years old. But this tank seems to date back to around 15th Century A.D according to the myth. There is a huge population of fish there and water level never seems to drop much anytime. I felt sad though seeing plastic covers and thrash near the tank. The mutt also seems to have opted for renovation in its own way (using Cement and modern construction materials) instead of restoring the piece of history, destroying what must have been a heritage center. The mutt looks like any other building now, like any other temple strongly reminding the ones in Bangalore that are highly modernized and commercialized.
