You'd be surprised to find such a huge temple area just off the extremely bustling Inner Ring Road in a quiet cul de sac. We found ample parking when we went there, and the temple itself is quite nicely spread out. What was nice was also the quiet inside and the unhurried darshan, which I personally prefer over the jostling and loud crowds in other, more visited temples. If you're the spiritually meditative kinds you would love finding a place on the cool floor in one of the corridors and just sit there for inner peace. Nice!

This place is truly one of the best places to visit in Bangalore.The temple is very peaceful and clean.You can feel the positive vibes once you enter this temple.Photography is not allowed here hence you cannot take pictures.The place is remarkable for meditation since crowd is not there.I visited this temple in the evening and I was simply amazed to see the calmness and serenity.

You might say not another temple but you will not say that after you have visited this one. They don't get much bigger or better. On arrival you should be immediately impressed by the sheer size and magnificence of the temple from the outside. As tourists who just wanted to visit rather we were overwhelmed by the cleanliness and efficiency of how the temple and grounds are maintained. Please remember you will need to remove your footwear and don't wear anything above the knee including men as you will be requested to cover your body with clothing provided. You should also be aware that photography is not allowed inside and you will be requested to leave you camera with security. Don't forget to go back to collect it. We paid around 300 rupees and were fast tracked into the temple. We were greeted inside and asked for our names and marital status as a kind of blessing. We were then directed to the main area of the temple where we sat at the front whereas those wishing to pray etc were positioned behind us which to me seemed rather odd. We should have been at the back and those who wanted to pray be at the front in my view. You then walk through an area where food and books etc are sold. Once you have found your way out you are free to collect your shoes and cameras etc. You will be impressed both inside and outside of this temple and your visit to Bengaluru will not be complete if you do not enter the grounds of this magnificent temple.

I had visited this temple on the auspicious day of rathasapthami when the annual car festival (chariot carrying lord suryanarayana would be taken out for procession) the temple was decorated to its best with floral and lightning it was a treat to see the temple and deity. The temple is very close to domlur and indranagar there is also good bus connectivity to this place. The temple is modern unlike the traditional temples in Bangalore, it has ample parking space and other amenities. Good to visit during evenings.
