It is at the foot of the hills in the center of the lake outside the
village of Varang.
This temple is known as Jalmandir of southern regions. In the year 1711 of
the Yikra era, Muni Shilvijay came here on a pilgrimage. In the past, this
was a rich and prosperous city. On the hills here, there were sixty
temples. This is an ancient tirth in Karnatak. At present, hundreds of
people come here on Fridays for worship. They get absorbed in worship in
order to fulfill their wishes.
At present, besides Jalmandir, there are two other temples.
