Kaup Sri Hosa Marigudi Temple
Kaup Sri Hosa Marigudi Abhivridhi Samithi
Kaup – 574106, Udupi Dist.

Dear Devotees,
As you all know kaup is an age old religious centre in the Udupi dist having good historical background. It is the seat of Mariyamma adored as the most powerfull mother having different name and culture such as “Mari”, “Mariyamma”, “Mahakali”, “Mahalaxmi” and Mahasaraswathi”. She is indeed the most powerful who watchsafes one and all.
The word “Amma” evokes powerful feelings in the heart of her devotees and fosters in them the Mother – Child relationship. She is a loving mother who bestows her motherly love, care and blessings on her devotees.
And that is why she attracts hundreds of her children’s every Tuesday for the week and in thousands during “Aati” (In the month of July) and “Jaarde” (In the month of November) Maripoojas and over a millions from all over the state during the “Suggi” (In the month of March) Maripooja which has been hailed as one of the seven great “Maha Jathras”.
Kaup Mariamma has an interesting history. The poet Linganna in his book “Keladinripavijaya” has very vividly narrated this. According to him in the year 1743 king Basappa Nayaka built a fort called “Manoharagada” on the beach of Kaup. He also built a big fort at Mallar on the outskirts of kaup as a resting place for his soldiers. These soldiers brought with them their Godess of war called “Dandinamari” and worshipped her. It is this powerful goddess that is worshipped by her devotees as the “Mariyamma of Kaup”. History tells us that the present Hosa Marigudi was built in 1830 A.D.
Our Indian culture gives a special and elevated godly place to mother as she brings forth new life into the world and nurses and nurtures her children. We are happy and proud that the universal mother protects the mankind has chosen to stay in our midst in kaup as the most powerful Mariamma.
How can we, her children reciprocate her motherly love and care?. Is it not the right way to do it by erecting a magnificent house for her? Yes, we think it should be. So keeping this in mind we have planned a new temple with granite stones in the midst of cool, placid and powerful and colourful garden . The devotees come to her feet with their petitions, trials and tribulations must have a congenial atmosphere that makes them to converse (Plead) with tiers and nine levels symbolizing the “Navadurges”. There will be unfolding of beautiful sculpture, mesmerizing scenery and state of the art, master place of architecture. As this new “House of Amma” is going to be a entire granite stones and slabs. The children of Amma will offer the granite flowers to her lotus feet.
We now appeal to you to come forward to strengthen our hands in completing this dream project by contributing our mite. We are sure that our dear Amma will reward a hundred fold your generosity.

Invoking the blessing of Amma
Yours sincerely
