It is a small temple of the RishiSringa, the saint after whom the whole place 'Sringeri' is also said to be named. It has a lot of sanctity, and it can be visited easily if you have your own vehicle.

It's 12Kms south of Sringeri. If you are driving - use maps or ask local people. Autos are easily available near the temple, but for Taxis you may have to ask around
