A very quaint and rustic pilgrim centre

The very place is peaceful and calm. The temple is well maintained and the management is doing a pretty fine job, which is evident from the way things are organised.

For sarpa samskara pooja, they recommend accommodation at Ashlesha. However guys at the counter are very rude. No respect for elders, no control on speech and above all not at... More

I was there at this temple just the last week with my family.

The Subramanya temple is reached by road and railways easily from Bangalaore. The Railway station is 12 km from the temple and autos are available. The temple has many private hotels and guest houses and accommodation will not be a problem, if you are travelling with family. The temple provides prasadam twice a day. Temple closed by 8:30 PM.
