Dodda Mallur village, on Bangalore-Mysore Highway at Chennapatna, is famous for its Temples of Sri Krishna.
But the biggest attraction here is the sanctum dedicated to baby Krishna, known here as Navaneetha Krishna - a mesmerising idol of baby Krishna in a crawling posture, with his long locks braided neatly in a pigtail flowing over his body and carrying a grab of butter in one hand.
The belief here is - if childless couple visits this Krishna and sincerely pray, they get their prayer sanctioned - they beget a baby soon. After that, the couple has to visit the temple with their child and thank the Lord by hanging a silver cradle in the sanctum. They also adorn the baby Krishna idol fully clad with butter. This is a great sight.
