Namada Chilume is a natural spring situated by Devarayanadurga, near Tumkur in the state of Karnataka in India.
The spring issues from the surface of the rock. It is believed that Lord Shri Rama, along with Sitha and Laxman, stayed here during their Vanavas. Lord Shri Rama searched for water to apply nāma/tilak on his forehead. When he couldn't find any water, he shot an arrow aiming at the rock. The arrow penetrated the rock, made a hole, and the water came out. Henceforth this place was called Namada Chilume, meaning "Spring of Tilak".
