Shivoham Shiva Temple, Bengaluru

2.9
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. Make Shivoham Shiva Temple a centerpiece of your Bengaluru vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bengaluru visit planning website .

  • Nice place very good for Lord Shiva followers !! Well tried and good maintenance as well.. Entry ticket is little high but its good to pray and use the items they give ,along with options provided. Normal entry - 150 rs Special entry - 250 rs .. As on November 2017 You can spend a quality 1 or 2 hours inside temple. It has nice underground caves like structure and big Shiva and Ganesha statue !!
  • Shiva statue is astonishing. But people over there are very bad. They just keep collecting money as entry fee and when I argued they were ready to make a discount for senior citizens. So they have built this temple only for people who can pay, I meant only people with money in pocket can enter. We go there for some peace but before entering the temple only we get pissedoff with the way people treat us and their ticket policies. Ridiculous. They have made it a great business platform by making the people fools.
  • I felt wonder there is no free entry into the temple,basic entry fee is Rs.100 other top up options are there to visit other setups. I hope this the only temple in India which gives you such a bad feeling when go see lord shiva at the entrance. Since then you feel the commercial at every step in the temple. Only thing you feel great about he temple is giant lord Shiva statue.
  • you can get awesome feel and peace.. Shiva statute is mind blowing and environment is very divine. you can get some peace..
  • Temple is very good.. but the temple is made up of business.. Just to enter the temple u need to spend more than 100rs.. it's not about devotion.. it's about business there..
