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 is situated on Karnataka and Andra... More

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...

This place gives us the glimpse of architecture of ancient Indian subcontinent,specially the hanging the pillars.although it's been slightly damaged by the British but this place is worth visiting once. Nandi statue just 200 mtrs away facing the temple which is one of the biggest Nandi in world.

Lepakshi is a village in Anantapur district, Andhra Pradesh. It is famous for the largest monolithic Nandi and architectural wonders of Veerabhadra Swamy Temple. It is a quick getaway from Bengaluru. Lepakshi is just ~90 km from Bengaluru outskirts (Devanahalli). Lepakshi can be reached from the Bengaluru-Anantapur national highway (NH-44):Bengaluru-Devanahalli-Chikkaballapura-Bagepalli-Lepakshi. After Bagepalli, we need to take a left turn and... More

Wonderful place to visit for a days trip from Bangalore. Monolith carving of Nandi is indeed a marvel and the temple has its own beauty. Hire a guide to understand the details and story behind this archietecture. You will be amazed to know the details as to how Layapakshi (Jataayu) became Lepakshi.

This place has old temple with sculptures. Temple has moderate rush of devotees. If someone has visited Hampi or Somnath temple(near mysore), sculptures here don't seems attractive. Some reviewer wrote about hanging pillar in this temple. When I sav it pillar has full support from beam of roof. From ground to pillar very small gap is there (not even 1cm),... More

The road from Bangalore to Lepakshi is very smooth. This was a bike trip by the two of us, took approximately 2 hours for us to reach. There are two points of attraction in Lepakshi. If traveling from Bangalore, the monolithic Nandi is the first pit-stop. The intricate sculpting is quite outstanding, the bells around the neck of the Nandi... More

It feels amazing to see such majestically beautiful places, built as old as 13th-16th century and still standing tall with its charisma. Right from beautiful Murals at the ceiling to meticulously carved pillars, this place is must visit for any history and architecture lover. The hanging pillar one such interesting place to check out inside the temple. You can also... More
