Sri Annapoorneshwari Temple is an ancient and famous temple located in the scenic surroundings of Horanadu, 100 kms south-west of Chikmagalur, in the state of Karnataka. Located amidst thick forests and valleys, this Devi Temple is visited by around 5000 devotees every day.
It is believed that Deity in the Annapoorneshwari Temple was installed by Sage Agastya. Recently the shrine was renovated by a scholar astrologer, Venkitasubba Jois. After the installation of the new image of Adi Shakti, the temple is now known as Adi-Shaktyatmaka Shri Annapoorneshwari. Design of the Deity of the temple has been done in a unique manner. The single image portrays the Goddess standing on a peeta holding Devi Gayatri, Sri Chakra, Shanku and Chakra in Her four hands. The recently renovated sanctum is surrounded by Adi Sesha. The Padma Peeta is designed by Ashtagaja, Koorma and others.
