Looks like in normal days there won't be that crowd. It took 30 mins to visit all 3 important temples in the premises , normal... More

Visited this place after visiting Chikka Tirupati. It takes around 2hrs 15min to reach this place from Chikka Tirupati. 1) This place has good parking facility. 2) One can observe that many people have installed Shiv-Lingas, even politicians. 3) This place also has a Balaji Temple inside and is good. 4) Entry fee is Rs.20 per head 5) One can...

It is about 100km from Bangalore. Roads pretty good. Temple was too crowded when we went on Jan1st 2017. Not good hotels near the temple premises although you will find few dabas . Foods were ok. Carry enough water. It took hours for us to reach.

We visited this temple with lot of hopes but disappointed.I personally would love to visit Shiva temple. My personal suggestion to people who want to go there, 1.Carry your own food including water since no good food outlets available. 2.Higly commercial place and you shall visit once for the sake of visiting. 3.The area around is also not very good....

Takes 3 hours to reach from Bangalore. Own transport recommended. No decent hotels after Kolar. No hotels after Mulbagal. Road till Mulbagal is 4 lane. 2 lane thereafter till the temple. Better to visit in evenings, 4-6 pm. Can spend 1 hour Max inside the temple.

To visit this place does not need planning. It is near to Bangalore and ideal place for 1 day short trip with family and friends. I left Bangalore @ 9 A.M from HAL and reached at 11.15 A.M. I was amazed after seeing lakhs of Shivlinga and great statue of Nandi. We also visited temples of Mahadev, Vishnu and Brahma.... More

A wonderful place for religious people and especially who are all devoted to Lord shiva. From the KGF bus stand it comes around 7 kms, have good parking and then entry fee. The way is properly structured you can't zig zag or skip, you need to go one by one. The temple priest will tell about the brief of the... More
