The statue of lord ganesha is awesome to watch. Its big just as its name says "Dodda ganapathi". Next to it there is the bull temple and Basavangudi market. Good place to visit the cultural places of Bangalore.

The dodda ganapathi temple on Bull temple road is a place attached to my childhood. It has retained its old world charm, though the are has developped quite a bit! A good place to catch some local flavor.

Located in the older part of the City in a serene environment the Temple has the big Ganesha- carved out of a single rock- pretty beautiful to look at! The whole campus of the temple along with the Dodda Basavanna Gudi and the other small shrines at the backyard of the Ganesha shrine are all wonderful to visit. Great experience... More

Simple and good temple. This is just next to big bull temple. In my second visit to bull temple with my parents, I have visited this. Outside of the temple, you can buy the photographs of bull and Ganapati. You will cherish the temple and the memories even after your visit.
