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.

The Shri Veerabhadra temple just outside Lepakshi village is a great example of fine workmanship during the Vijayanagaram period. Barely 120 km from Bangalore, on a very good highway, it is an easy day trip. It is desirable to take a guide , so that the subtle nuances of the history and mythology , depicted in the murals and in... More

This Heritage place is really good to visit, especially great choice if you are visiting with Family, Couples or Friends. Easy to access from Bangalore with rood road system in place. Best part is, it has alternate route which links to Highway, if you are struck in traffic or the usual road is damaged. This place is like Old Jewel... More

Planning for an one day trip from Bangalore, you must visit Lepakshi. It is around 130 kms away from Bangalore. You can easily visit this place and come back by evening. Loved the historical architecture and the mural painting in Veerabhadra Temple.

It's a short drive from Bangalore. Situated inside a small village, this temple is one of its kind. It will surely take us to our rich old architectural brilliance. Every stone has a story to tell and the sculptor's work is above imagination. Recommend to visit. Please take care of few things - Very few good eating options - Breakfast... More

This is a beautiful Historical Place about 130 kms from Bangalore. The Drive is nice and should take you about couple of hours (unlike Mysore which takes more than 3 hours to reach). You feel exhausted after the Visit. Do ensure to take a Guide who can give you snippets from Ramayana. There are no eating Joints (other than APTDC... More
