Vidurashwatha is a small and ancient village located in the Gauribidanur taluk of Chikkaballapura district near the Karnataka - Andhra Pradesh border.
The name of the place, Vidurashwatha is derived from of a Huge 'Ashwatha' (Ficus religiosa) tree located in this village. According to the legend, during the times of Mahabharatha, this Ashwatha tree was planted by Vidura, a courtier in the kingdom of Dhritarashtra; and hence the name Vidurashwatha. Unfortunately, this ancient tree fell to the ground in the year 2001
There is also a temple dedicated to Naga Devatha, which is as old as the tree, here people do the prathishtapana of the naga idol, to fulfill their wishes, such as having child, to achieve in their business etc., the pooja and worship is done here to get rid of all problems concerned with Naga dosha or Sarpa dosha.
