TOWN - BHOGANANDISWARA DEVALAYA
ancient temple situated at the foot of the Nandi hills near
Bangalore belongs to ninth century and it received ample endowments
and renovations from time to time by the Chola and Vijayanagara
kings. Built in the Dravidian architectural design, its exquisite
sculpture and vastness with a beautiful tall Sivalinga in the
spacious garbha griha lifts the souls of the theists and tourists as
well. There is another temple with a big Sivalinga on the top of the
hill, the erstwhile summer resort of royal families luring devotees
equally well, who offer soulful prayers during their stay on the
hills in summer season. Though modest in size, its antiquity and
glory attract theists.
