Built by vijayanagar empire it's more than 500 years old. The veerabhadra temple is very artistic. The statue is huge here . It's Suyambu. The temple and the pragaras are... More

I had been to Lepakashi with my family on Jan 2016. we reached here almost late in the evening. Temple architecture was really nice. The view of Lord Verrabhadraswamy in the temple was terrific. Even the sculptures around the temples was nice. The best part was the huge Nandi few hundred meters away from temple. Due to less time in... More

The drive from Blore to Lepakshi was spectacular. We took a detour to see Nandi hills on the way. The Nandi statue is beautiful and huge. The gardens around it make it look even more majestic.

Beautiful place, clean, and peaceful. We started at 6 in the message morning as we were planning for mantralaya, so on the way lepakshi. We reached at 8.30, road to lepakshi is good, little interior. But we all enjoyed 6 + age kids as well as my in-laws. Overall good.

Best visited in winters as this temple is built on rocks. Surprising that instead of scorching sun, rocks are cold. Very nice feel of non commercial old temple and architecture is such that you can enjoy the breeze and sit in peace.

The place can be visited en-route Bangalore – Hyderabad. Situated in the Ananthapur District, Lapakshi is 120 kms distant from both Bangalore & Ananthapur and 480 Kms from... More

Lepakshi is a 2 hr drive from Bangalore on NH 7 towards Hyderabad. The temple architecture is beautiful and one can easily spend few hrs exploring the history of the temple, use of a guide is recommended to connect to the local history, the dancing floor has unique sculptures worth spending some time, the hanging pillar in the main courtyard...

Lepakshi has a famous monolithic Nandi statue (which is among the largest in the world) and a large temple complex from the period of Vijayanagara empire. The two places are roughly 250m apart although walking from one to another in the bright sun could feel like a much longer walk! There is not much to do in the town other... More
