Talakaveri is famed as a mountain region with the original source of famous river Cauvery and hence the name Tala-Cauvery (head of Cauvery). It is a holy pilgrim center for Hindu devotees and is located in the Brahmagiri hill at 1,276 m above the sea level. Talacauvery is located in Kodagu district of Karnataka, India.

At present the visitors can see a tank (pond) at the place where Cauvery is believed to be originated. A small temple is also seen nearby. This temple and the surrounding regions are frequented by the pilgrims. The temple in Talakaveri is dedicated to Lord Agastheeswara. The legendary stories say that Cauvery was held captive by sage Agasthya in a Kamndalu, a pot carrying the sacred water. Lord Ganesha in the form of a crow made the Kamndalu to topple at this hill when Sage Agasthya was meditating.

It is believed that taking bath in Talacauvery is very sacred and it can relieve the man form all his sufferings. There are many temples in Talacauvery. One of the most impressive attraction is Bhagamandala, the confluence of three rivers Cauvery, Kanake and Sujyoti. Other temples nearby devoted to Lord Ganapathy, Subramanya and Vishnu. An annual festival celebrated during October / November attracts many tourists to this hilly temple town. During this festival the region becomes very attractive with thousands of lights lit in the temples.

There are many breathtaking views in and around the hill town Talacauvery. This town has a facelift now with many buildings and hotels.
