The town got its name because of the temple named after Sri ( spider ) Kala ( serpent ) hasti ( elephant) after the three animals, who were ardent devotees of Lord Siva. These three animals attained divinity through worshipping Lord Siva. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kannappa Spider, Serpent, Elephant Sri, Kala, Hasti
