Lepakshi, in the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh, is easily accessible from Bangalore. The beautiful Veerabhadraswamy Temple and India’s largest monolithic granite Nandi (a bearlike creature) make for a great day-trip option.

Lepakshi was on my to-visit list from quite some time. I finally got to visit it last weekend. The drive from Bangalore to Lepakshi was very comfortable. The hanging pillar, the temple complex, Nandi statue are all well crafted. You can hire a guide to get to know the history/mythology behind the place. All said, I was a little disappointed... More

Though AP cops were standing on road but didnt stop us. The road... More

nice drive down the bangalore hyderabad highway, lepakshi has a wonderful nandi structure. the temple which is just a few metres away from the temple is really worth a visit. the stone carvings on the pillars and walls are beautiful.

Nearly 120 Kms from bangalore. Anyone in bangalore can plan for a single day trip. You can start by 7.30 or 8 in the morning and reach here by 10-10.30. On the way you can see grape fields. The road is superb. The temple has lots of artistic works. A great creation from our ancestors. The temple is famous for... More

This is located at distance of 2 Hrs from Bangalore and ideal location for a day trip. Easy to reach as one has to take Bangalore Hyderabad Highway and then take left on Lepakshi road, which takes you to the Veerbhadra Temple. The sight seeing consists of a monolithic Nandi, which is one of the largest in India. It stands... More

Just came back from Lepakshi. Must say, this place is photographer's paradise rich in arts & sculptures and partly associate with the epic Ramayan. Just 120 kms from bangalore on hyderabad express way. The scenic beauty on the way is beautiful. Definitely recommend for weekend travel.

It is a nice outing. The drive is scenic and after exiting Bangalore there is no traffic... But it would be nice to choose a cloudy day as the destination can be warm. The lovely statue of Nandi is the landmark you cannot miss on the road. Next to it is an AP tourism hotel, restaurant and information Centre. This... More
