following are "my personal opinions" about this place as per title this is fully commercialized place starting from the entry fee 20/- + 100/- camera (which nobody bothers to check) 3-4 temples are in row in a way that you can't escape or bypass any of them pujari show their arrogant side when we ask to bypass the temple IMO...

The road was in good condition until the highway after that huge potholes and a single lane for two ways. But can be managed. Except one food court there is absolutely none until the end ..with children we should... More

Two unique things about this temple is that it houses the largest Shiva Linga and the highest number of Shiva Lingas. There are close to 90 lacs Shiva Lingas in this temple. More Shiva Lingas are being added to increase the number to 1 crore. The main deity of this temple is Lord Shiva who is worshipped in Linga form... More

I have visited the place long back as a one day trip with my friends. The place is unique and good as you can see more then 90 lakh shive lingas and the world largest shivalinga as well. The priest were demanding for money is the bad thing and should be avoided to make the place more to visit.

We were staying at a nearby farmhouse for celebrating Valentines day. Decided to visit this temple in the evening and I was very excited hearing that there is a temple with one crore shivalingas nearby. I am very fond of ancient temples and I was under the impression that all theses 1 crore shivalingas are maybe natural rock formations. What... More

Visited on August 2016. Felt like they built this temple to loot the people. Starting from the parking: 30 Rs for parking payable. 20 Rs entrance fee. Once you enter in every temple priest will tell to pay money and its compulsory if we don't pay they will tell directly don't come inside temple next time.

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
