Located on the foothills of the Sahyadri Mountains and on the banks of Kumara Dhaara river in Sulya Taluk, the Subrahmanya Matha in Kukke is the home to the Samputa Narasimha. The story behind the creation and the signficance of the name of the Kumara Dhaara River is itself very interesting. As legend goes, when King Indradyumna was performing some Yajnas, Bhoodevi appeared on to earth in the form of Mahanadhi. This Mahanadhi was later called the Dhaara river. It later came to be known as Kumara Dhaara because Lord Subrahmanya (also known as Kumara) was appointed as the Commander in Chief of Gods by anointing him with the water from this river.
