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.

Temple was very clean and seems shivlingas were painted recently,as we got heavy paint smell all around. Initially when u enter... More
