Anegudde Sri Varasidhi Vinayaka Temple is situated in Kumbasi, Udupi District, Kundapura Taluk. Anegudde means Ane = elephant Gudde = hill, it is called as elephant hill. It is one of the seven pilgrimage places of created by ‘Parashurama’.

As per the legend, Gautam maharishi resided in this place and performed various religious rituals. But a demon named Kumbasura started interrupting and destroying the religious rituals. Tired of Kumbasura’s interruption Gautam Maharishi went to Dharmaraja head of Pandava’s to protect from the demon. Dharmaraja ordered to his younger brother Bheemasena to kill the demon. Even after a big war, Bheemasena was not able to kill the demon. When Bheemasena was worried and started thinking of ways to kill the demon, he heard a divine voice saying “Demon can be only killed by a sword from lord Vigneshwara”. Bheema prayed lord Ganesh and lord appeared before him in the form of an elephant and gave him the sword. Kumbasura was killed with this sword by Bheem. Since the demon Kumbasur was killed here, this place was later was called as “Kumbasi”. Kumbasi was called as ‘Hari Hara Kshetra’ in Krita Yuga, ‘Madhu Kannana’ in Treta Yuga and ‘Gowtham Kshetra’ in Dwapara Yuga.
