Lepakshi is a 15 century, quaint temple, located around 110 kms from bengaluru, at Anantapuram sub circle, around 10-15 kms off the Bangalore-Hyderabad highway. Essentially a morning afternoon trip, the temple is well maintained with marvellous sculpture & statues of Lord Veerabhadra Swamy. The temple has shrines dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Goddess Parvati, Lord Ramalingam, Hanumalingam and the Navagrahas. The... More

Gigantic monolithic Nandi and a temple nearby dedicated to Veerabhadra are the highlights of this town. The Veerabhadra temple has an unusual shivalinga protected by the sculpture of a 7-hooded cobra- hewn into a rock. Worth a detour if you are in the area

Lepkashi used to be a small town that houses sculptures more than 500 years old that could only be reached by torturous country roads in the past. With India's modernization of the highway system, in a hour and a half you can be at the approach to the Hindupur turnoff from the Bangalore-Hyderabad super highway. The bumpy ride on the... More

Lepakshi is an ideal one day outing from bangalore with excellent road connectivity. After a drive of 2 - 3 hours, we reached LEPAKSHI around noon. Due to December weather, it was pleasant walking around the Nandhi and the surrounding garden. We proceeded to the temple for darshan and enjoy the famed architecture. The Durga and Virupaksha darshan completed, we... More

Just 2-3 hours away from Bangalore, depends on which route you're going to take. But i would suggest taking NH7 as the road is much better and you can also do some sight seeing. There's nothing much to see around the area but the temple itself, the architecture, the history is more than enough and is worth visiting for. We... More

Good place to be going to if one can't travel farther to Belur or Halebid. The architecture is admirable.
