Abstract Literature is a very important tool in portraying the history and cultural uniqueness of a nation. Literature is not just entertainment; it becomes a source of explaining the history, character, culture and life of the people of that country. Kannada literature is no exception to this. Since ancient times, Kannada literature has taken various forms and genres according to time and has been helpful in building the cultural history of the context. Seen from this point of view, Sthalapuranas throw light on the ancient culture, customs and traditions of a country. And it is doubtful that they would have produced an equally perfect history. Keeping the original source of the information found there is helpful in engaging in pending fact-finding. Even though the Mahatma of such Sthalapuranas is rarely found in Kannada literature, the 17th century can be said to be an important period in terms of Sthalapurana Mahatmas.
'Mahatme' means greatness, majesty, glory. It should be said that these local mythology mahatmas were created with the purpose of glorifying the importance of a place or a historical person and philosophy. “There is a tendency to view mythological Mahatmas as different from history. Mahatmas were created to celebrate the importance of place, person, and philosophies, based on traditional dominant story genres.
