Temple History :

The Lakshmikanta Temple is a Hindu (Vaishnava) temple located in Kalale, which is a village in the Nanjangud taluk of Mysore district, Karnataka state, India. Lord Vishnu is the presiding deity of this temple and giving darshan as Sri Lakshmikanta Swamy. The temple dates back at least to the early 18th century and was built in Dravidian style. The Lakshmikanta temple was under the patronage of some of the kings of the Mysore Kingdom. It was expanded and lavish grants were made by king Dodda Krishnaraja-I of the Mysore Wodeyar dynasty before c.1732.

In the early 18th century, Dalavoy (feudal lord) Devarajiah of the powerful Kalale family donated the impressive metallic figure of the Hindu god Sri Rama to the temple during his last years. According to Habib, Hasan, and Sampath, in 1791, the de facto ruler of Mysore, Tippusultan, gave the temple gifts in silver including four cups, a plate and a Spittoon (Padiga). Habib and Hasan claim the inscriptions on the gifts itself provides evidence that the gifts were made by “Tipu Sultan”.
