Chaturmukha Basadi Travel

Chaturmukha Basadi, with a total of 108 pillars sanctified by Vir Pandya deva in 1432, is one of the noteworthy Jaina monuments sited at the rocky hill at Karkala. It is built in the form of a four faced hall, with a supercilious doorway and pillared entrance on each of its four sides. Chaturmukha Basadi got its name as four doorways alike each other in four directions lead to the Garbhagriha. The flat roof is constructed with very big granite slabs.

Garbhagriha encloses the images of the Yakshi Padmavati and 24th Tirthankar, apart from the standing statues of Suryata, Ara and Malli. This is the most famous and attracted temple in Karkala. A nice place offers peaceful meditation and prayer.
