Katil is a religious destination in the state of Karnataka that is frequented by a lot of tourists who pass through the western territories of the state. Katil is extremely famous for a temple that is located in its premises. This temple, also called the Durga Parameshwari temple, attracts a lot of religious tourists and pilgrims from across the country. The region is very crowded especially during the Navarathri festival, when pilgrims will flock to the Durga Parameshwari temple in thousands. .

The Durga Parameshwari temple in Katil has two main deities, including the chief deity (Devi Durga) and the other deity (Swayambu Linga/Shiva). The Shiva Linga in this temple is entirely covered with gold, and gazing at this Linga during the festival time amidst the lights is a sight to behold for pilgrims and tourists alike. .

The Durga Parameshwar temple is also crowded during Fridays, as tourists swarm to the town of Katil during this time as it is considered auspicious. You can witness the process of Thulabaaram while you are in Katil, as people donate their weight in gold to the temple’s proceedings through this process. All these and more can be witnessed at the Durga Parameshwar temple in Katil. Tourists can also travel through its surrounding regions, as this part of Karnataka is lush and full of beautiful scenery.
