  • Vijaynagar Tamil Inscription, Someshwara Temple, Ulsoor There are several notable sculptures and decorative features in the complex. An impressive pillar (kambha or nandi) pillar) stands near the tall tower over the entrance gate (gopura). The tower itself exhibits well sculptured images of gods and goddesses from Hindu mythology. The open mantapa consists of forty eight pillars with carvings of divinities in frieze. To the north is the navagraha temple (shrine for the nine planets) with twelve pillars, each pillar representing a saint (rishi). The entrance to the sanctum exhibits sculptures of two "door keepers" (dvarapalakas). Other notable works of art include sculptures that depict King Ravana lifting Mount Kailash in a bid to appease the god Shiva, Durga slaying Mahishasura (a demon), images of the Nayanmar saints (Tamil Shaivaite saints), depictions of the Girija Kalyana (marriage of Parvati to the god Shiva), the saptarishis (seven sages of Hindu lore).[2] Recent excavations at the temple site has revealed the existence of a temple tank (kalyani) which could be 1200 years old
  • It is oldest temple in the city dating back to the chola period, it is dedicated to the Hindu god shiva. Major additions or modifications were made during the late Vijayanagara Empire period under the rule of Hiriya Kempe Gowda II. It has carried lot of history with time. It is a peaceful place in city.
  • Very ancient temple of Lord Shiva, nearly over 1000 years old. It's well maintained considering how old it is. Very pleasant to visit, and to meditate. Occasionally traditional dance performance or competition are held in the temple premises. During dussera, ratha utsavam, and other festivals flea market are kept on the street. During Maha Shiva Rathri the queue reaches the length of more than 200m. Abishekas like Rudhra Abishekam and many more are done during early morning depending on days of week.
  • This temple built in chola style. more than 1000 years old well maintained, main deity is Lord shiva Moola vigraha is huge shiva linga. All around the temple is decorated with lots of sculptures still in good shape. Lot of cenima shooting are made. Nice place to spend with family.
  • Wow a beautiful piece of architecture and history, in middle of an urban jungle standing here from past 1000 years. Wow!!! Lord Shiva is here along with him there's peace and divinity, what more a person can expect in such busy city? On Nama Shivaya
