  • Hebbur is a village in the southern state of Karnataka, India. It is located in the Tumkur taluk of Tumkur district in Karnataka. The town is famous for Sri Kamakshi Sharada Mutt, with the goddess Kamakshi Sharada being the presiding deity. A very rare piece of Hindu iconography, called the 'Shri Chakra' made of panchaloha, is installed in the shrine. It is supposed to represent the Primeaval Energy from which the whole universe issues forth and is held very auspicious by many a Hindu. This icon is believed to have been found in a deep well in this tiny town. This town was earlier called as 'Ghanapuri', which is a Sanskrit translation of its Kannada name, Hebburu. The town had more than a 100 temples but most of them are in a bad shape now.
