I visited this place which is a few Kilometers away from Kolar Gold Fields last week.The breath taking view of over 90 lakhs shivalingas is a treat to see. Around 10 lakhs lingas are going to be installed in due course which would make a total of One crore Lingas. The place has Manjunatha swamy temple inside which is the... More

This is about 2 Hr driving distance from most locations from bangalore. The temple itself is on vast property and the fact that there are so many Shiva Lingas make it a must see attraction for family as well as visitors. There are no restaurant nearby, so will need to plan on lunch along the way back.

The place is maintained neat and clean. When you enter the place you will surely feel Great with so many shivlings around we felt very nice. We have taken route from marathalli bangalore to NH7 to Hoskote -> kolar -> bangarpet and from bangarpet the place is around 13 km. Nicely maintained parking space. Shiv devotee should visit this place.

I m quite OK with idea of entry fees as the temple trust surely needs money for maintenance of such a vast temple. Temple was very clean and seems shivlingas were painted recently,as we got heavy paint smell all around. Initially when u enter... More

I visited the place on Dusserah, 2013. Place is filled with shiv lingas... If you want to have a village atmosphere that is close to bangalore and pilgrimage, this can be a good choice... The drive is good -> Hoodi->Kolar->Bethamangala->Temple. Till Kolar road is wonderful. A total of 85kM for me with 60kM of highway and 25kM on village roads.... More

this is a filed full of lingas... these lingas are treated with no dignity... no one ever will even put a piece of flower on all those idols except during the time when a devotee is relieved of his cash.... the purohits are worst than bus condutors shouting and appealing to devotees to give cash offerings to lord for something...
