At Talakaveri in Coorg (Kodagu), Karnataka, a singular annual spectacle takes place in the foothills of the Brahmagiri Hills. On this day, a small concave-shaped hole called Brahmakundike on the Brahmagiri Hills at Talakaveri in Kodagu erupts with holy water. The Kaveri River originates at Brahmakundike.

At Brahmakundike, there is a pond where devotees can take a holy bath. The holy occasion also ushers in the Kaveri Jatra, which lasts for a whole month. Numerous worshippers shave their heads and take a sacred bath in the pond.

People participate in the Kaveri Jatra by taking a holy dip at the Triveni Sangama, where the Cauvery, Kannike, and Sujyoti rivers meet, and by praying at the Bhagandeshwara temple. About 8 miles separate Talacauvery from Bhagamandala town.

In areas that directly benefit from the powerful Kaveri River, special prayers and pujas are performed on this day for coconut or cucumber wrapped in a crimson silk fabric. Goddess Kaveri is represented by coconut and cucumber. On this day, flowers and diamonds are used to beautify Goddess Kaveri.

The ritual is known as Kanni Puja, and the jewellery presented is Pathak or mangalsutra. Areca nuts, betel leaves, and glass bracelets are among the offerings made to the deity.

Throwing uncooked rice on a coconut or cucumber covered in crimson fabric is a traditional way to give prayers.
