Sri Veerabhadra Swamy temple
The village Malahal is at distance of about 15 kms from Chennagiri town of Davanagere district, which passes through the Chitradurga-Shimoga highway the village can be reached at a distance of 8 kms from Benkikere. The Veerabhadra temple at Malahal village was built about 500 yrs ago. This temple was in a very bad shape due to growth of vegetation all around and non maintenance. After complete dismantling the existing structure using only about 30% of the existing stone and preparing new members in place of old / missed stones the structure was rebuilt after strengthening the foundation suitable shikhara is constructed over garbhagruha. After restoration of the temple during 2014-15 the regular daily pooja is continued.
