Shivoham Shiva Temple, Bengaluru

(2.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Shivoham Shiva Temple, recently built in 1995, is rumored to hold the most powerful Shiva statue in the world. Due to the gigantic idol, thousands of devotees visit each year to pay their respects at the temple, whose creation itself is a bit of a marvel. Ravi V. Melwani, founder of the temple, hired a sculptor named Kashinath, who molded the statue with his bare hands, without a plan or measuring tool. At the entrance, find the largest Shiva Linga gate in the city. Farther in, find a Lord Ganesha statue as well as two bell towers that make the location of the healing stones, which are said to have miraculous healing powers. Use our Bengaluru vacation route planner to arrange your visit to Shivoham Shiva Temple and other attractions in Bengaluru.

  • Place located in traffic area . Good place located near the mall. But highly commercialize . decorated and made complicated view for the statue.  more »
  • It's a gorgeous giant statute that is surrounded by a tourist trap. You'd think such a holy statue would be set away from the world for quiet reverence. This one is in the back of a shopping mall park...  more »

  • One star only for Shiva statue.. commercial place like any shopping mall in Bangalore.. they really fleece you.. they force you to buy tickets for everything.. even though you can do a free darshan.. people who do free darshan are seen as very lowly people.. go to this place only if you don't have anything to do and want to throw money
  • Fully used for commercial purposes. Everything they need is money money MONEY...
  • Only money oriented, here for every step u take you have to pay, don't u feel devotional, entrepreneurship in name of god.
  • Don't go otherwise you will insult Lord Shiva, fraudsters running the place, dont fill their money bag avoid and pray to Shiva in any small temple and donate the money which you may spent to make this fraudsters rich
  • Very big temple to pray to lord Shiva. The big statue of this temple has become famous in some parts of Bangalore. The biggest credit should go to the people who built this statue of Shiva . I am feeling proud because I have seen this temple at least 4 to 6 times Om shivaya namaha
