Akkanna Mandira

During the  Eigth Centenary Celebrations we thought of constructing a temple named after Akka Mahadevi near Udutadi village in Shimoga district. At that time that site was under the ownership of Muslims. I sent Shamsuddin, the Deputy Minister of finance in our cabne, to Udutadi to meet the Muslim owners of that land and sent word that they should transfer their rights of ownership to the society of Akka Mahadevi. Shamsuddin carried out the job entrusted to him and agreed to give Government land in some other place in return for that site. The work that Shamsuddin did was really commendable. On the site a beautiful temple commemorating Akka mahadevi has been built.
