Owner description: 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.

It was a Friday evening with our cup of tea. Me and my wife were looking through the Lonely planet book and searching for places nearby Bangalore for a Saturday drive - and wow what a discovery . We found one of the 7 wonders of India - Leepakshi Temple right in the corridors of Bangalore. Ideally located at 125... More

This place is less known and hence is not crowded even on weekends. Its a day picnic from Bangalore at a distance of approx 130 kms. We had packed our lunch and had a good picnic. It is advisable to read a bit about this place before you go as lots of history is buried in these temples. Things like... More

This less known temple is a perfect one-day-get-away from Bangalore. A good amount of reading before visiting will help. We did not find good places to eat so it is better to pack food or eat on return. http://tejesvini.blog.com/2014/11/07/a-visit-to-lepakshi/

Lepakshi is a place hidden in a small sleepy town in the district of Anantpur, Andhra Pradesh. It is a 2 Hour drive from Bangalore and the connecting roads are good. Once you reach Lepakshi you wil forst pass the Monolithic statue of Nandi but wait do not go there first. When you reach Lepakshi head towards the Veerabhadra Swamy... More

Lepakshi is a small place with a historical background. Tucked away from the B'lore-Hyd highway, this place is good for a day tour. The two-hour drive on a the highway is refreshing with a stop over for a meal just before Nandi hills. The 10-12km road that leads to Lepakshi from the highway cannot be missed. We are not talking...

We went on a Drive from Bangalore. It is about 3 Hours on the NH7 towards Hyderabad. We left early in the morning and were back in the afternoon. The drive itself is quite fun as it is on one of the best maintained highways. But be careful of people crossing the roads since they might jump out of the... More

Lepakshi as a historical place is very good...Friendly people, guides, temple pujari and all...all of them seem to know Hindi, Kannada, English and local Telugu language which is good for almost any tourist from India and outside... It is 2 hours from Bengaluru (towards Hyderabad) and hence a very comfortable day trip...better to visit between October - February time as... More

Lepakshi temple is a good one day visit trip from Bangalore. The drive is good (ahead of the KIAL towards Hyderabad). The temple is well preserved and its worth a close look. The pillars, carvings are worth a closer look. A single monolith Nandi opposite of temple is definite visit. Immediately after exiting NH7 towards Lepakshi, one can notice a... More

Lepakshi is ~120KM away from Bangalore, an ideal location for one-day trip. The Bull statue and Veerabhadra temple complex are the two attractions in Lepakshi. Plan your trip post lunch, around1.30 - 2 PM if you would like to avoid hot sun and would like to spend a relaxed evening in the temple complex.
