Nice place with less crowd

You could get a unique view of shivlingas here. If going from bangalore, go by NH4 and not by state Highway.

We started around 7.30 from home and reached there around 10 am. We can see the shivlingams 5 mins prior we enter the temple.So elegant and... More

Visited Sri Kotilingeshwara Temple over the weekend, with the wife and the kids. Overall an excellent one-day trip, great roads and a magnificent temple. We kept walking through the temple marveling at the sight of "literally" millions of Shiv Lingas, donated by various people. There are a couple of gigantic Shivlingas with 2 giant "Nandi" statutes too. Also, they have... More

Kotilingeshwara Temple is a beautiful temple with Shiva lingas everywhere. It has the tallest Shivalinga. To reach the temple from Bangalore you need take a right deviation near Kolar on Bangalore Thirupati highway. Need to travel around 30 Kms after taking the deviation and the road is decent.

But seeing so many Lingams one place is amazing. worth... More

Kotilingeshwara is more for the ardent Mahadev devotee than anyone else. Located in a rural countryside, it's a quiet darshan site suitable for a quick day excursion. The journey to the nearest train station Coromandal from Baiyappanahalli is a relaxing 1 hr 40 mins trip. Take an auto to the temple from the train sation appx 50rs or bus 5-10rs... More

Went with my parents and brother. Started early from Bangalore by 7AM via KR Puram towards Hoskote. Just over 90 minutes journey. Got ample space for parking vehicles. Take the entry ticket and venture into the temple. There are 3 compounds which house all the 91 lakhs (as of Aug 2015) installed by devotees. The smallest lingam one can install... More
