Pergade

The Pergade family is a Jain Bunt family who descend from the creator of the Dharmasthala Temple.

Birmanna Pergade and his wife Ammu Ballalthi and are the hereditary trustees of the temple. The eldest male member assumes the position of Dharma Adhikari (chief administrator) and uses the title Heggade. The Heggade was the feudal lord of the temple town and solved civil or criminal disputes. This was a judicial function and continues even to this day: The Heggade sits in judgement on hundreds of civil complaints, known as hoyulu, each day. About nearly twenty generations of the Pergade family have assumed the position of Dharma Adhikari.

The present Dharma Adhikari is Veerendra Heggade.

The list of previous Dharma Adhikari is as follows:
