The sacred pool at Talakaveri
Each twist and turn she takes, before she leaves kodagu, tells a story. 1
Today the people of Coorg celebrate the birth of river Kaveri – The River Goddess, mother to the Kodavas. Kaveri is the river they hold sacred – the river on which the prosperity of the land, of its people, traditions and culture is dependent.
We wish all of you a very happy and prosperous Kaveri Shankramana.
