About Paliakkana Basadi – This temple is situated beside the origin of Kumudvathi river (popularly called as Kumudvathi Tirtha). The temple was in a very dilapidated state. An inscription in front of the temple and the ruins indicate that is had a wide mukha mantapa in front of the Garbagriha. It has a 3 feet high stone idol of a Tirthankar in padmasana posture. This idol was installed by Paliakka the second wife of Vikrama Santhara & hence the name Paliakka Basadi. The temple is also called as Tirthada Basadi / Pattana Swamy Jinalaya and was built by Pattanaswamy Nokkaiah Shetty in 1061 A.D. in the Karthika Masa’s (month) 5th Sunday.
Coincidence – It a matter of coincidence that after 957 years the renovation of this temple has been initiated in the Karthika Masa.
