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 lot of people have already done a good job listing most of the sight-seeing option that one have while visiting Lepakshi. So I wont cover those aspects. I would like to mention something about travel times, road condition and food while visiting Lepakshi. We were a group of 4 families visiting Lepakshi for a day trip (4 adults, 2... More

Once you raech the town, the only attraction is the Lepakshi Veerabhadra temple at its surroundings.areas which have lots to see and... More

1) Temple Complex: The main temple complex is at the heart of Lepakshi village. All the attractions, the Veerabhadra temple, the seven headed snake, floating pillar, incomplete marriage hall, Sita's foot step etc are inside this one complex. Hire a guied, he will tell you some amazing stories. The explanation for each part of this complex is very interesting. 2)... More

Lepakshi temple is easily one of the most beautiful, architectural, cultural, picture perfect places i have visited. This temple looks small from outside, but you need 3 hours give or take to appreciate this historically gorgeous temple. We visited in the month of March and had accepted the fact that we gonna get heated up in the sun, but surprisingly... More

Lepakshi, in Andhra Pradesh is a nice place to visit from Bangalore. Its around 120 KM from Hebbal Flyover and situated further off the NH7 after BIAL. Most of the road till you turn on the Lepakshi Road is a superb 4 lane highway. But once on the Lepakshi Road, its narrow and single lane (with no dividers), so watch... More

We visited the Temple and monolithic Nandi in Lepakshi, in the summer of 2014. Surprisingly, this place has awesome Krishnadevaraya style construction with very impressive rock carvings, Music mantaps and multi-prakaras of the temple. The construction like many other vijayanagara style is without major masonry work but amazes. The monolithic Nandi is supposedly, one of the biggest in the world.... More
