Its about 2-3 hrs of drive from Bangalore and drive is quite fun. Do carry food items and water with you as you will find difficult to find good eatries near temple. Though the place is commercialized but its worth to visit once. Lots and lots of shivalinga's are there with a very high ling and a nandi standing in... More

This temple is completely commercialised. Major problem is you cannot directly visit the big lingam. You have to visit all thesmall temples where there is a long Queue. .

I think the place is quite hyped up. There is a huge Shivling, and plenty of small shivlings there, but they don't seem to add up to 90 lakh as told by many. The temples are nice though.

Its a nice place just 2 hours drive from bangalore towards Kolar. This place is very unique in nature because of the presence of 90+ lac Shiva Lingas and counting...a bit commercial in nature though..but your devotion is not!!! It houses the largest Shiva Linga in the world. Definitely recommend for weekend visits.

This place is amazing, and one of its kind. It has lot of lingams in place. The place is very well maintained and is very clean. Its hardly 90 kms from bangalore. And is a nice place to visit. You can place your own shiv ling in the temple. The place has a huge, covered car parking.

We started early in the morning to avoid heavy traffic in Bangalore as our destination is nearly 85 kms from Whitefield. The way goes through Hoskote, Mulbagal, Bangarpet and Kammasandra. From Bangarpet the temple is at a distance of nearly 14 kms. There is Kamath Restaurant in Hoskote if you like to take your breakfast. But Hoskote is just 15kms... More
