About Moola Kona
The Gajapath hill is an ideal spot for picnickers and trekkers, lending its beauty with one of the most visually pleasing waterfalls. The hill is covered with herbal floral greenery and the water passes through them seems so crystal clear water reaches a small pond through two cascades. One coming from the eastern part of the hill opposite to the temple of Goddess Parvathi Devi shrine facing north and the other from the northern part of the hill, just opposite to Lord Sangameshwara Swamy shrine facing east , water from the hill falls into a small pit of about 10 feet deep and reaches the pond and the other cascade passes to the Lord Jalalingeshwara swamy along with a nandhi is installed in the middle of the pond on a 7 feeted platform. Lord Ganesha facing north are also installed here just beside the pond.
