About Sri Tripurasundari Temple

Moogooru a small town in Tirumakundal Narsipura (T.Narasipura) taluk of Mysore District in Karnataka. There is a famous temple here for goddess Tripura Sundari, also called Thibbadevi. 

Tripurasundari’ means one who is beautiful in the three worlds. She is considered as the union of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara. Hence the Devi is in the ultimate Shakti (Power). The temple at Muguru has high walls all around, decorated with small Statuettes Of the Goddess in different forms. There is an arched mahadwara. The temple does not have a Rajagopura ( which you see in other South Indian temples ). There is a big Parikrama inside the complex. At the center of the complex on a high pedestal is the main temple / Shrine. There are a few steps, climbing it leads to the ‘Mukhamandapam’ with four pillars. The pillers are simple with no intricate design. Over the garbhagriha (sanctum), there is a medium-size Vimana displaying beautiful carving and colourful statuettes of the goddess in different forms on all sides. Inside the sanctum the Goddess Tripura Sundari is placed in a sitting posture with Sri Chakra at her feet. The idle is made of black stone.

Muguru Sri Tripurasundari story

Shi Tripurasundari (Thibbadevi) temple of Moogooru  village, T.Narasipura taluk, Mysore district is around 850 years old. According to the legend it is believed that this temple was constructed by a Muslim palegar (territorial administrator appointed by the Nayak ruler of South India) Nawab Baba Saheb. Nawab Baba Saheb wanted to expand his territory, so he goes on an expedition. And after the war while returning home he stops at a place to take rest. (This place is three kilometers away from Moogooru now called Hosahalli village). He tell his Army to take rest near the lake and he sleeps on a stone under a Jamun tree. All for sudden he sees a bright light. Disturbed by the bright light he gets up and when he sees at his Army all of them will be “still” in catatonic state. Then the Goddess Tripurasundari appears in front of him and says ‘as you have rested your head on me, all this has happened’. The Nawab says ‘I am a muslim and I don’t believe in any other God than Allah’ and challenges her ‘if you are a real god, you have to win the challenge I give, then I will accept you as a God’. When the Goddess agrees to the challenge, he takes a dried jower stick, plants it upside down (root up and shoot down) and says ‘if this jower stick has sprouted (shoot with new leaves) by tomorrow evening I will believe that you are a God, if not I will destroy you’. Saying this he goes away. Next day evening when he goes to that place he sees that the dried jower stick would have sprouted. He falls at the Goddess feet and ask for forgiveness. As a reparation for the wrongdoing he takes permission from the Goddess to build a temple at Muguru. So the Goddess will say that ‘she will destroy all the progeny (lineage) of Mookasura who are residing in his territory and will abide in that place. Later this place was called Moogooru. The Nawab requests the Goddess to show her miracle to the world by making the jower stick spring every year. From then on every year they do the spring blooming festival (chiguru Odoyo Jatre). During this festival, goddessess from neighbouring villages (supposed to be sisters of the Thibbadevi) are brought in procession to Muguru. Traditionally the sisters of goddess come to visit Shi Thibbadevi then the procession is taken around the village. This Festival is celebrated for 3 days.
