  • Within Rs 250/_ to & fro charges from Bangalore, you can visit this beautiful Shiva temple, which is architecture wonder. If you come by rail, it is still cheaper. HINDUPUR is nearest rail station. Many autos/ Pvt carriers are available for just RS 10/_. The buses stand near temple only. The Temple's surrounding is really marvellous. We feel that we should sit there only to view the beauty of the architecture. Latest timing is morning 6 o clock to evening 6 p.m.
  • A great architecture marvel and an amazing temple complex. Divine atmosphere. The temple complex is maintained well. It is not a friendly temple for disabled and wheelchair bound people. Don't miss the hanging pillars. Parking is available for a fee. Road from Bangalore to temple complex is in excellent condition.
  • Mesmeric carvings and sculptures around this place. Very large boundary. Paintings on the ceiling of the open hall, the floating pillar etc are things you shouldn't miss. This place is so beautiful that you won't get bored even if you see it twice.
  • Very peaceful place. Entire temple is built on a single rock. The temple is very big. It will be dark if there is no power. Some of the mandapams surrounding the main temple are ruined. Entry is free but need to pay parking charges (less than ₹50).
  • Wonderful combination of history and architectural beauty. A must visit, just to appreciate the creativity of the period. Hardly 2 hour drive from Bangalore with excellent roads. The temple itself is very calm and peaceful during early mornings making it a wonderful experience. We ended our visit with tatte idli and coffee at nearby local breakfast place, which seemed to be the perfect way.
