Lepakshi, in the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh, is easily accessible from Bangalore. The beautiful Veerabhadraswamy Temple and India’s largest monolithic granite Nandi (a bearlike creature) make for a great day-trip option.

A quick weekend drive to Veerabhadra temple at Lepakshi that takes 2 hours from Bangalore City. The place has a historical significance with detailed sculptures and a mammoth Nandi. The story goes that Jatayu died here and Lord Ram freed his soul by chanting Le Pakshi - "Fly Bird" hence the name of the place. Do not miss out the... More

One of the perfect one day getaway from Bangalore. This spot can be loved for its ancient historical importance, a heritage monument, and a beautiful drive from the city. Be it either a two wheeler, or a 4 wheeler, it will be a awesome drive up and back. Located 125 kms from the Bangalore exit point (Hebbal) It was a... More

Probably this is second largest Nandi - monolithic, in India, well preserved and intricately carved - considering it is on stone. Artists have done commendable job in carving bells and other ornaments around its neck.. Size of Nandi can be guessed by looking at the people standing by its side, in the pictures. This attraction is right at the beginning... More

We randomly selected to goto see this place; Lepakshi is one of the architectural innovation some one can think of; It is believed that the temple is not standing on ground all the pillars are hanging from the roof and god knows where the roof is hanging; I have taken a cloth and pulled it under few pillars and saw...

This splendid architectural creations are just 120 kilometres from Blore, to be precise from indiranagar.. It's a quiet tiny village which houses the biggest nandi in india apparently and temple belonging to Vijaya Nager era, the mural paintings on the roof of the temple is a marvel, and the lack of maintenence only means over a few more years it...

The place is located off the main highway and its a bumpy ride. I drove all the way from Bangalore, but as soon as I left the national highway, the road that leads to the temple is broken. The temple in itself is a soothing site. It is non commercialized and very well built architecturally. The Nandi statue and the... More
