Talacauvery is presumed to be the origin of the Cauvery River. A tank had been built here and it is supposed that the Talacauvery received Water from here. Talacauvery is an important Religious Place, as a Holy Kundike is believed to have been emerged from a small permanent spring.
Today, however, the source has dried up. Cauvery continues to flow and is considered a Holy River by most of the South Indians. A small Temple had been built to mark this place.
