“must visit”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

visited this temple on the way to Kabini river lodge.will need minimum 2.5 hrs to contemplate the sculptures.seperate nandi temple in the outer corrodor worth mention.major setback was all boards were displayed in kannada and there was no detailed description in english.
good example to show that vaishnavites and saivites were in harmony in those days
must visit

Located atop a hill this is a bustling temple. There are some breathtaking views of Mysore while on your drive back. Be sure to stop and click.

“Dakshina Kaashi!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We drove from Mysore early morning and there were no rush. The Darshan of this abode of Lord Shiva is a great relief to the hearts and mind. parking is adequate and fortunately no fleecing of visitors here. We have fed the temple elephant standing outside.Nanjangud is 30 minutes drive from Mysore.

“divine”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

This temple is about 27-30 Kms from Mysore.There are govt buses from Mysore to Nanjangud.Before boarding the bus ask if the bus will go to the temple as many Govt buses will go to the Bus stand instead of temple as their last stop.There is also a train station in nanjangud.From the Govt bus stand and train station its about 15 Min walk to the temple(One can also hire autos).
The temple is very old and even Tipu Sultan was a believer in this Lords power.The temple has seen little or no renovation.This temple is also called Dakshin kashi and is definitely worth a visit.This temple sees lot of rush on Mondays.There is a place for pilgrims to stay near the temple but can be visited if one stays in Mysore also as its only 30-40 Min from Mysore KSRTC Bus stand
