    Hi.. Can you tell me what is the literary sources of these story?

    • Prashanth says:

      I don’t have any literary sources. But these are the legends told from one generation to other. I heard the same story at Kaidala temple and the same story is narrated in the Kannada movie ‘Amarashilpi Jakanachari’

    What is the name of Jakanachari’s wife?

    • Prashanth says:

      Couldn’t find her name – both online and also at Kaidala while speaking to the people there. Some of the historians say that Jakanachari himself was not real but a legend.

    And I wasn’t aware of images (sculptures?) of his parents.

    @Arun, there is also a movie on this legend in kannada – ‘amarashilpi jakanachari’

    Interesting story about Jakanachari’s birthplace. Had heard of the frog story, but did not know about the bet.

    Do you know there is also a speculation that Jakanachari is just a legend and never existed?
