Mahaganapathy Temple is located at Madhur Village
in Kasargod District
. The presiding deity is Mahaganapathy (Lord Ganesh
). The river Madhuvahini flowing leisurely in front of the temple regally rises the beauty of the land.
The temple is famous for its rich architecture and copper plate roofing. The sanctum is two storied, with beautiful paintings ornamenting its outer walls. A five day annual festival held here is a major draw. Various folk arts and Yakshagana, the dance-drama of Karnataka
are staged during this festival.
Madhur is about 8 km north of Kasargod
