    Absolutely loved to visit this krishna temple and follow their rituals while walking around the place. It seems to be always very very full. Everyone was very helpful to me. Be aware of the modest dress code.

    Most ideal place to visit with family and friends.The Bull Temple in Bangalore, also known as Nandi Temple, is famous for its large statue of the sacred bull, Nandi. In fact, with a height of around 4.6 metres and a length of about 6.1 metres, the idol of Nandi in this temple is said to be one of the biggest in the world. This unique feature attracts many devotees and tourists to the place.

    Lord Ganesha grace and blessing is what we seek for any new start in our life. From student days traditional Bengaluru people have been following this.

    Dodda Ganesha Temple and surrounding has retained the old values and beauty of the true city I was born and brought up.

    Must see place which is nestled in Basavanagudi and Gandhi Bazaar

    I visited along with family on early Jan 2021. Nice place to meditate. Very calm & attractive place to be. Due to the existing situation , we are allowed to visit the meditation center(pyramid place) only. We are not allowed to visit other places with in the premises due to pandemic. Cafeteria is available where we get food after paying the reasonable amount. Once they open up all the other places , it will be very nice to be there & spend some time with family. I definitely would like to go again once all the places are opened up for visitors.

    Weekend Trip to Ghati Subramanya from Bangalore North. Good roads leading to the temple and lots of greenery meant a pleasant drive. Temple is beautiful. There is a parking area but is not organized, it is for self to find a a parking spot. Lot of shops outside the temple selling pooja articles, spices, nuts, toys and much more. There is both a free entrance and a special entrance with a charge of INR 50. Can get crowded on weekends. Vibe is blissful. Its a swayambu idol of Lord Karthikeya and Lord Narasimha and make sure to look at the mirror behind the idol. Prasada was provided after the darshan and also available to purchase at a counter within the temple premises. It took an hour to go in and out in the morning.

    This temple built on a hill. Priests were highly educated and trained according to Sringeri Mutt rules. Pancha mugha Ganesa at the below the hills and Karthikeya on the top of hill are the deities besides Lord Shiva. The temple was so nice with a good spritual environment.

    Gavi, meaning the cave where lord Shiva is housed. This is a very ancient and a beautiful temple. A must visit if you are visiting or stay in Bangalore.
    Pls note that there are 2 parikrama routes in the cave, one immediately beside the lord Shiva sanctum and another a bit away. The later one gives you a real feel of the cave and along this path is many idols of goddess is placed. Do both the parikrama.(Do a third one as parikrama should be done in odd counts...1,3,5..)

    I visited this place twice. Jotting down both the experiences.
    1st visit 2013: There was no entry fee. Temple had big Shiva statue. All the devotees were directed to big Shiva statue. As per the guidance i went near the statue,pray to God and clicked some pics. The holistic vibe of the temple will soothen the mind.
    8th September 2019: Temple had two different entry fees. Normal darshan : 50 rs, special darshan: Includes different pooja. Most of the pooja again priests will ask extra money. It has become commercial place for priests. None of the priests know kannada and have too much of attitude. Temple has 12 jyotirlinga and big Ganesh statue. Good place for one time visit.

    Have been to this temple n number of times and each experience has been blissful. Renovated and beautiful from the last time I've visited. Covid norms followed. Prayers done with utmost divinity. Parking for 2 and 4 wheelers is available. Lord Anjaneya in his majestic form is eye pleasing and peaceful.

    Very nice Church with different languages mass especially on Wednesday and Thursday. Be aware that Bengaluru road conditions are pathetic. Probably we need to wait till the election time for proper road for all the city. Viveka nagar cutting street was extremely busy with loads of vehicles which doesn't move and create Chaos near the church. If you want buy items in church Shop you need to wait till 9 am as after mass in the morning they don't open. Be aware.

    Really a heaven on earth. We, three families went on recent holidays. Received warm welcome and they explained about various packages. It has 6 floors to cover. Each floor has some theme, Lord Krishna's stories, Lord Siva's stories, Lord Budda's stories etc. Mr. Srinivas, a guide from their side explained us in detailed manner. They got a great and rare collection of Tanjore and kalankari arts. Light show on Dasavathara is worth watching. 108 dancing postures of Lord Nataraja (Lord Siva) are superb. Inhouse canteen, resting places, kids play area, very royal function hall are highlights of this place. We are fortunate to meet founders' son and his wife. They are so sweet and gave us great hospitality. I strongly recommend this place.

    After a long gap of covid19 outbreak,finally i took risk and visited this temple.This temple is situated near malleswaram 15th cross.There is a BMTC busstop opposite to this temple.This temple is on the top of the hill and Lord shiva is worshipped as mallikarjuna and people believe that this place got the name as malleswaram due to this God.Lingam inside the temple is very small like srisailam in AP.There is a temple of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha just beside this temple.

    Very beautiful place that you can visit in 15 minutes. The statue is very impressive, so it is totally worth the visit, but there is not a lot to do there.
