Jirale Mallamma

On the way to Kaduti (Tumkur district) from Siddapur, there is a clean water tank (Kalyani) and people around, whose thirst it quenches, pour two handful of water on a female figure carved on a nearby pillar. Inquiries reveal that it is the image of a philanthropist, Jirale Mallamma, who did so much for the place and requested in return that the gentry may offer some water to quench her thirst. A copper plate of Gundlahalli of Tumkur district speaks all about her social and constructive works. Here is a living legend of Jirale Mallamma who did much for society and in return asked so little.
