Shivoham Shiva Temple, Bengaluru

3.2
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 .

  • Place is amazing. Even if it's a religion place it s a must when you visit Bengaluru. My recommendation is to know,in advance, about the meaning of the temple to make it more useful  more »
  • This place has a magnificent lord shiva statue but is so commercialised that they have literally got packages being offered to you. Every single thing is charged. The shiv-lingas are everywhere in the...  more »
  • I wanted to see the giant Shiva once, and it came in the family. It enters from the entrance of a slightly strange, black building on the main street. When I entered, I felt like I was already away from some religious thing, and my child was mistaken for coming to the cinema. You can pray for 250 rupees per adult. Sunday afternoon was easy to see and not crowded. The staff were very nice. Although the Hindu was of course seriously puja, it was a temple that came without hesitation even by the religious person. I take off my shoes at the entrance. Also, when I bought a ticket, I gave me a bag containing a CD, but one bag was enough for my family.

  • This is good for one time visiting. You will feel good here. However, most commercial temple in the Bangalore. Basically, this is not a temple. Beaware, ask the tickets Rs 50 for entry only. Otherwise they will give you Rs.150 per head. If you are going there for pray purpose.
  • Peaceful It is a small and a beautiful temple with a feeling of Himalayas around. This tall and beautifully structured Shiva idol is the main attraction of the temple. The pathway to it is very dark and long and it looks like a tunnel that you have to pass through reach the Shiva idol. Water falls from his hair and you can actually feel the drops and mist in the premises.
  • Temple of Lord Shiva. A huge statue of Lord Shiva siting in meditation position is been erect here. Just situated in well approachable location, focuses on all holy location of Lord Shiva and benefits of meditation. One can buy passes for various pooja and attraction.. At last can sit in front of Lord and feel all positive vibes around. Must visit place.
  • Its a beautiful place.. ❤ You should surely visit.. For peace of mind.. But if you want to view the whole temple you have to pay rs. 250 .. Or else you can only see the outer side of the temple..
  • Place is good. But they are running a templr for business. If you pay 250Rs you can easily go inside. If you don't want to pay then they will.make you walk a lot. Even when temple is not at all crowded.
