Manjunath Temple, known famously as Kadri Manjunatha temple, is situated on the foot of the picturesque Kadri Hills in the proximity of Dharamasthala. The temple is the living specimen of the Vijayanagara style of architecture and the temple dates back to 1068 AD.

The Manjunath temple enshrines Shree Manjunath a distinct form of Lord Shiva. It is in the style of Udbhava Linga. It is seen as a natural stone slab placed in a parallel level to the floor of 'the garbha griha'. A distinct feature of the linga is that it absorbs all the amount of the water poured on it.

There is a tall Deepa Sthamba, carved out of wood covered with bronze. Many other deities are also placed around the temple. These include Vyasa Muni, Gomukha Ganpathi, Durgaparmeshwari, Shastav, Ganapathi, Vishnu and Trilokeshwara. The temple encloses many figures like Matsyendranatha, Sringinathahas and 6 ft high Gorakhanath. Pattanaje and Lakshadeepotsava are important festivals of this temple.
