45 Km, about 19 Km north of Hungund, the pilgrimage center of Koodalasangama lies at the confluence of the Krishna & Malaprabha Rivers. On the banks of the river is the renowned temple of Shiva as Sangameshwara. There are idols of Basaveshwara, the famous saint composer, his consort Neelamma, Nandi & Ganesha, in the temple complex. Basaveshwara is said to have spent his boyhood and later attained nirvana here. Facing the temple, in the midst of the river, is a small stone mantapa with a Shivalinga in it.
