metropolitan city of Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka state
houses among many places of worship two famous ancient Sivaalayas of
great reputation. The Kadu Malleswaraswamy temple lies at the
northern end of Malleswaram bus stop, and is visited by ardent
devotees regularly. Though not majestic in proportions, or
sculptural adornments, it owes its glory to the Lord's abundant
mercy showered on the pious bhakatas. Another
one lying in Seshadripuram too is an old one, but contains all the
important parts. Its spacious courtyards are always crowded with
devotees signifying God's popularity and peoples' faith in HIM.
These two are older than Kempegouda, the founder of this famous
city. Another one attracting devotees lies in Basavanagudi.
