  • In the same area there are other temples around this this temple. Car parking is not an issue here. Nice place and very calm. Really good temple.
  • Nice ancient Temple in the heart of Basavanagudi. Neatly maintained. Highly important for the religiously inclined people. Nice place to visit and spend some peaceful time with family n friends.
  • Wow it's an awesome place. Every year celebrates festival called kallekai parse. Good place to visit.
  • Not very big Temple. It is in the premises of Big bull temple. Opens morning upto 12.00 and evening 5.30pm to 9.00pm. one park is near by which opens 4.00pm to 9.00 pm.
  • Temple is great! Historic too. But the priests shout and create chaos during pooja time and spoil the peace of the place.
