Annapoorneshwari temple is picturesquely situated amidst thick forests and valleys in horanadu near to udupi and mangalore in karnataka. Sage Agastya is said to have installed the deity. The sanctum was renovated in recent years by a learned astrologer, Venkitasubba Jois. The deity has been designed in a unique manner: the single image depicts the Devi annapoorneshwari standing on a peeta with Devi Gayatri, Sri Chakra, Shanku and Chakra in Her four hands. The sanctum is surrounded by Adi Sesha and the Padma Peeta is formed by Ashtagaja, Koorma and others.
The name "Annapoorneshwari" means "Feeding one and all". The uniqueness of this temple is everybody who visit this temple are provided with food (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) and place to sleep in the temple premises. Shri Bheemeshwara Joshi is the present Dharmakartaru of Annapoorneshwari temple.
