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.

* It’s a place not so far from Bangalore, so a relaxed ride. * Size of the temple is not too big, so the visit to temple will not exhaust you. * Little less famous, so the place is not much crowded. Lepakshi is a village in Anantpuram, in Andhra Pradesh. Its around 130kms from Bangalore and is well connected... More

There are a couple of attractions around Lepakshi. The two we visited were - the statue of the Bull (Nandi) and the temple. They are almost co-located so, visiting isn't an issue. The temple complex requires one to keep footwear off, please keep that in mind. And the temple offers up an incredible number of things to be amazed at... More

Nice Shiva temple with well preserved carvings on the wall, depicting Ramayan and Mahabharat epics. It's a decent one day trip if you are looking for an outing with quiet family time and no adventure. We started from Bangalore in afternoon, reached the venue in 2.5hrs. Road conditions are great. Over all good time spent.

I had visited this place with friends on a bike ride after a long time.. It's about 140kms far(one-way) from Bengaluru and is right on the Karnataka-Andhra border. It's a temple that is famous for being the temple where Shiva-Parvati Kalyanam(marriage) happened. The temple has beautiful carvings from top to bottom on all sides of all the pillars. The whole...
