Shivoham Shiva Temple, Bengaluru

3.0
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 .

  • Really good place to go there . If you are In Bangalore. Peaceful and silent. I used go every weekend. Please go and pray for everyone. You will be happy.  more »
  • We were at the Shiva temple and visit any site. To enter you need to take your shoes off and you can't take pictures. Walking barefoot is not a common experience, but .... Worth the visit.

  • I stayed near by this temple for 2-3 years. I visit this place most often. There are couple of things which you can explore here. A bigger Idol of lord Ganesha at entrance and lord Shiva Idol after you enter in to the temple. You'll find a peaceful atmosphere inside the temple. It will be more crowded during festivals. I would prefer to go in normal days only. Everything is good at this temple but I would say this is a commercial place because you have to pay for most of the places inside the temple.
  • From great lovable experience now it is just turned out into monetary based temple. You can’t visit closer if you don’t have money. Minimum 150rs required to visit the entire temple. Don’t what happened ? Why suddenly it is turned into money making place ? Feel for poor people. Beside money making place, it is wonderful experience being here. Toilet facility, car parking is available. Your time and money is worth but is it really needed is the question. Siva is absolutely breath taking and gorgeous.
  • What an amazing temple in Bangalore! It's beautiful and there is a very systematic approach to viewing the temple and doing puja there. It's really one of a kind. You can take your time through the temple and really enjoy it. Go for it if you are in Bangalore.
  • It's a pure commerical centre for robbing devotees of their faith.. not even money. In true sense.. a tourist spot for tourists and no longer a temple for devotion, and faith. A temple which is commercial (and not even economical).. cant be called a temple anymore.... Talking religiously... If u need money to find inner peace.... Then it's not where I wanna go anymore. I have boycott this place personally ( as did my whole family, since the management has started demanding money for entry) . I rather prefer a calm peaceful temple just 200m away to seek my inner peace a secluded corner where I see my Lord and enjoy the company of kind hearted people around me. Good luck for all who wanna support the extortion. 😁
  • Shiva idol is really nice, but entry fee is 150 rs per person. Which is too much. They loot you like anything. Be aware of it. Thanks
