Shri Kshetra Dharmasthala, is one of south India's most renowned religious landmarks with a history as old as 800 years and it is the land of righteousness and piety,. Manjunatheshwara, the chief deity, has taken the form of a shivalinga and made immaculate, the temple town of Dharmasthala since and forever. "Dharmasthala", the abode of dharma, is the quintessence of humanity and faith. Name suggests, the word dharma in its truest sense means righteousness, it is the embodiment of the world's most divine emotions in spite of one's cast, creed or religion. Lord Manjunatheshwara, is being worshipped in a very unusual yet exceptionally inordinate manner in Shree kshetra Dharmasthala, as this Shaiva temple is beseeched by Vaishnava priests and administered by Jain descendants.
