Inside is nothing particularly special, and you do need to be quite careful where you walk. But great photos from above.

“Underground shiva templ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The underground Shiva temple is called so because the temple is below the ground level. You don't have to enter cave or anything, a flight of stairs leads to the Shiva temple. Two people told two different stories for the temple and hence God knows which is the true one. One said the temple has underground passage to queen palace and she will offer prayers coming through that passage. There is always water flowing in this temple. Not just the sanctum sanctorum but the entire temple is under water. The guy maintaining the temple told us there is an inlet and outlet for the water and it is Thungabadra river flowing. When the dam water is released or during rainy seasons water level rises. One can walk through the cold chill water till the sanctum sanctorum. It is a little dark with bats and you will not know where there is a step and where there is none. So better to have torch or someone who knows the place to take you along.

There was nothing different in the architechture however this place is not well maintained, there as rain water stagnating inside the temple hence we could not go in beyond a point and made a quick retreat....
