History of Madhur Temple

Madhur temple was initially Madhanentheswara Temple (Lord Shiva) and it is believed that, a "low caste" female by name "Madura" found an "Udbhava Murthy" (a statue that is not prepared by a human being) of shiva linga.

The main attraction of Madhur Temple is statue of Lord Ganapathi on the wall of the sanctum sanctorum (Garbhagriha). The statue of Ganapathi was drawn by a brahmin boy and he was son of a priest. He drew a small Ganapathy but the image became big and fat. Therefore the boy called the Ganapathi as Bodda Ganesha or Boddajja.

As per the legend of Kumble, Tipu Sultan of Mysore attacked the Madhur temple and desired to demolish the temple during his invasion of Kodagu, Tulunadu as well as Malabar. A miracle happened after drinking water from the well of this temple, he changed his mind on attacking and demolishing the Garbhagriha of Madhur Temple. He left the place and moved in the direction of Malabar. However to please his soldiers as well as Islamic scholars he made a cut using his sword as an evidence of his attack. The cut mark even now remains and it is noticeable on the building that has been constructed across the well of the Madhur Temple.
