  • A beautiful and ancient monument. The architecture is breathtaking. The temple has an aura of calm and grandeur. It's about 2.5 hours away from Bangalore by road and is quite easily accessible as well. Ample parking is available. They have some beautiful murals and have life size carvings on the pillar.
  • Loved this place. This is the proof indian architect. Nice pace to visit with family & even Aline also.. Best for peace. Best for photography.. But sad thing about this temple is it not properly maintained. But anyway loved this place.
