Top ways to experience Sri Someshwara Swamy Temple and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Ulsoor
Home to Bangalore’s biggest lake, Ulsoor is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city, renowned for its quaint narrow streets lined with stylish home decor stores and boutiques selling handwoven saris and numerous temples like the impressive Halasuru Someshwara Temple, which dates back to the 16th century. Visitors can enjoy the sunset views while boating at the lake, which also has a walking trail along the shore. Connected to the center by the M G Road, Ulsoor remains a sleepy, spread out suburb closely connected with nature and still manages to be hip and buzzing with activity, thanks to a cluster of bakeries, cafes, watering holes and plenty of curio shops in the vicinity.

On 18th June'22, myself along with my son & parents got to visit Sri Someswara temple at Halasuru. It is one of the oldest temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.

It is constructed in the Vijayanagar style of architecture, the shrine has notable beautiful carvings on the walls and wonderful interiors. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Shiva. Other deities available in the temple are Kamakshamma, Arunachaleswara, Bhimeswara, Nanjundeswara and Panchalingeswara.

We had great dharshan & blessings of Lord Shiva and spent a pleasant evening at the temple.

Very ancient temple - Sri Someshwara Swamy is located in halasuru area. Temple is situated in a narrow and crowdy street. Temple having main deity as Lord Someshwara Swamy - form of Lord Shiva.

Vijayanagara era architectural style is visible in its outer and inner walls.

Very divine and holy atmosphere inside the temple.

This is a very old temple, probably 1000 years+, with a beautiful architecture. You can see the pillars of the temple carved very beautifully with various mythological characters on it. The main gharbhagudi, housing the deity, is square in shape and very unique. The temple has a huge complex with enough open space. You also have various other deity temples around in this complex.

This is one of the oldest temples of Bangalore city and it is tucked in the bylanes adjoining the busy MG Road. Don't miss visiting this temple and have a look at the beautiful architecture there and take the blessings of Lord Shiva here.

Halasuru (Ulsoor) Metro Station is at walk able distance from this temple.

Beautiful and mesmerizing temple st the heart of the city.Entrance gopuram decked up with lovely colors. A temple with Lord Shiva as the main deity dates back to the Chola era, it has since expanded and there are many shrines now.Parking for 4 wheelers is very difficult in the area as the lanes leading to the temple are narrow and crowded. We went in the evening and it was a pleasant experience
