    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.
