Right below the bull temple, its a well managed and historical temple for hindus. Evenings will be ideal for the visit with around 3 hours for all the surrounding spots to be covered.

This place is just next to Dodda Basavanna (Big bull) temple. One can have a day around these places to visit this temple alongwith Big bull temple, Gavigangadhareshwara Temple (simply superb) and so many around here. Basavanagudi/Hanumanthanagar is the religious capital of Bangalore (almost!!!)

One of the biggest monolithic idols of the popular Indian god 'Ganesha'. It is a major attraction for most of the tourists who have a religious stop over in their schedule. It is not very far from the city center.

Close to the Bull Temple you can easily see both in a short time unless you are a devotee. Parking isn't great. Cave Temple is just over the hill
