Uduthadi is about 7 km from Shikaripura. Uduthadi is the birth place of Akkamahadevi, the famous Kannada poetess. The ruins of an ancient fort can also be found here.
Mahadevi or Akka Mahadevi, sometimes called simply Akka, was born in Udutadi in the Karnataka region of India. At age 10, she was initiated as a devotee of Shiva, the pale-skinned god of destruction and rebirth, lord of yogis and ascetics. She worshiped Shiva in the form of Chennamallikarjuna, which means literally "Mallika's beautiful Arjuna".
