Southadka (Sowthadka) Maha Ganapathi Kshetra


Southadka (a.k.a Sowthadka) is a pilgrimage centre located at a distance of 3 km from Kokkada in Belthangadi Taluk of Dakshina Kannada district. The uniqueness of the place is Lord Maha Ganapathi is out in the open field and there is no proper structure of the temple.
Southadka Mahaganapathi kshetra is surrounded by panoramic scenes and fascinating greeneries and open round the clock for offering prayers, with simple worshipping opportunity to the public. A lot of cows can be seen freely wandering around the place of worship.

In Kannada language, SOWTHE means 'cucumber' and ADKA means 'field'. Cowherds in this place were growing cucumber and they offered the same to Lord Ganapathi of this place during their worship. Hence, this place gets the name as Southadka.
