Located right at the top of a hill, this is one of the ancient temples in the temple town of Melkote. There is however, a steep climb to negotiate and the steps are slippery at places and also high at some places. But, the temple is worth visiting and the scenery is something to behold.

This temple looks majestic and is visible when you are nearing Melkote as it is in a hill top. Steps to this temple is steep and uneven, so if you are going to this temple in a car then you skip half of these steps by parking your car in the open car-park half way between the foot of the... More
