Shivoham Shiva Temple, Bengaluru

2.7
#5 of 40 in Historic Sites in Bengaluru
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • A really beautiful and mysterious place.. Should visit but please inquire about the charges. They charge Rs. 150 above per head.
  • Even such a temple exists in Bengaluru!!! Pure money making stuff. If u have a little left devotion you ll loose even that. Employees are trained well how to cut the heads## they print ticket before taking money and they once they do so u forced to pay.they sag it's free entry but nothing is free.!!!! Worst experience ever! For everything theres money except oxygen and sitting place.
  • Well maintained, neat and clean but they are charging high for Darshan, in the name of God they are doing business what I felt
  • commercial temple not sure if this money is spent for good cause further
  • There are many hundis as many as 50 and the priests there are like business people demanding money for everything. Though there is provision for free Darshan there people are not allowing. I didn't feel any sacred feeling. Please don't spoil Hinduism with these kind of commercial things
