  • It was awesome experience visiting this historic place. It's a beautifully engraved n sculpted architectural temple. Can spend cool n splendid time with family. Definitely it's a place 2 c
  • A great place for one-day outing from Bangalore. The temple ruins are quite scenic and provide great photo opportunities. Hint: Pre-wedding shootouts.
  • A must visit for a connoisseur of history and anyone who appreciates art and architecture. Lepakshi is part of both medieval and puranic history. A much revered place even in the local folklore, it is a repository of traditional art and temple architecture. Each sculpture is unique and each facet narrates a story. A guide is a must to explore the temple and its surroundings. The intricate carvings, paintings and pillars are a wonder. Spare atleast 4-5 hours to explore the temple and the surrounding complex.
  • One of the best Kannada architecture and art. All the pillars in the temple has a different story. And the story of the temple is very good.
  • Architecture is simply superb and similar to temples in Hampi. Nice and peaceful. The famous hanging pillar which don't touches ground present in this temple.
