Karikaanamma or Shri Karikaan Parameshwari is a Hindu goddess temple in the Western Ghats in Karnataka, India, located near the town of Honnavar, established by Shreedhar Swami. Garbhagudi is carved out of a single rock. In 1970s when Indira Gandhi visited the temple, roads were fully built up to uphill. It is located in the very dense forest, so it is favorite spot for nature lovers. One can have an amazing view of Arabian sea from a top of the mountain.[1] It is dedicated to the deity Kali (Devanāgarī: काली). [2]
