Kundadka is a village located in the Bantwala Taluk of Dakshina Kannada District. According to mythology, Kundadka gets its name from a variety of reasons.
Firstly Sage Kaundinya, one of the closest disciples of Markandeya Muni meditated and practised penance here.
Another myth believes that the presence of a pond (Kund) which contains water all around the year is the reason why this place gets its name.
According to people, an idol of Deity Sri Vishnumurthi was also found in this pond. This place is believed to have hidden treasures and the presence of Naga, Raktheswari, Joomadi, GuligaDaiva adds more value to this claim, since they are the deities who protect such treasures. The Pandavas are believed to have come to this place seeking the blessing of Sage Kaundinya, and some symbols of their presence are present in the nearby Malaraya Moovar Daivasthanam.
