Really it's awesome... Well maintain...The main attraction of this peaceful retreat, which is surrounded by plush greenery, is a huge Shivalinga.

A very beautiful temple in the Kolar district and 2 hour drive from Bangalore. While the main temple is very old and traditional, its surrounded by shiva lingas - rows after rows after rows....different colours, different sizes. They aim for 1 crore shiva lingas to be installed there. Its a beautiful and awesome sight to see so many lingas in... More

Its unique place to visit. Big place, and photographer's delight. Good parking area available as well. While coming back to Bangalore, don't take google's recommendation. There is a 5km stretch of very bad abandoned road through some farms. Just drive straight on the highway.

We visited Kotilingeshwara in the month of May-2015 from Bangalore with family. It was a short family trip for about half a day. Kotilingeshwara is around 100 Kms from Bangalore and around 130 from Whitefield, Bangalore. We started around 10:00 A.M and it took us around 1.5 hrs to reach the temple. As mentioned in reviews, temple is worth seeing... More

We wanted to go somewhere close to the city as the idea was of a day trip. We had heard of this place from colleagues and thought of giving a try. The Bangalore - Kolar highway is excellent. The road is also not crowded hence you can enjoy a marvelous drive. The area around the highway is also very scenic.... More

Its a tourist spot. Did really feel religious. Loads and loads of shiv lingams. They make you stand in every line leading into each deity. Can be kept a bit more free so we can visit at our pace.

This is the 2nd visit to kotilinga. Had been here for the 1st time 5 years back. At that point I had liked this place a lot. I was feeling blessed being here. But now its completely commercialised. You dnt get the feeling of worshiping god. You cannot just visit the big linga. You have to visit all the temples... More
