Talacauvery is the source of the river Kaveri, located on the Brahmagiri hill near Bhagamandala in Kodagu district, Karnataka. It is located at 1,276 m. above sea level. Kodavas have erected a tank which is now considered as its origin. It is believed that the River originates as a spring feeding a tank or a Kundike and then flows underground to re-emerge as Kaveri some distance away. The tank is marked by a temple and bathing in it on special occasions is considered holy. The beautiful temple is surrounded by even more breathtaking hills.
