Sigandur or Sigandooru is a small village made famous by Chowdeshwari Temple which attracts devotees in thousands every day. It is around 35 kms from GundiMane (via Barge and road). There is also a “road-only” route which increases the distance to around 70 kms. Sigandur got surrounded on 3 sides by River Sharavati upon the construction of Linganamakki reservoir in the 1960s. The deity is believed to be very powerful and fulfills the wishes of her devotees. Placards prominently displaying “Under Goddess’ Protection” are used by the local people to protect their land and belongings from thieves.
A lot of people visiting Sigandur stay at GundiMane since it is only 35 kms from Sigandur and is a vegetarian-only homestay.
