Temple was good. Even though it was very cold outside, it was warm inside the temple. Carvings are really good. Worth a visit.

"Must see Shiva Temple!"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Sep 17, 2013
Being one of the Oldest Temples in Karnataka, it sure is worth visiting, it is placed very near to Nandi Hills and Muddenhalli (birth place of Sir M Visvesaraya)

I happened to visit this place last Sunday and I had a brilliant time. Shringi Teertha is a temple pond which is believed to be dug by the divine Nandi using his horns. Overall the architecture is pretty unique and well crafted and maintained.

Must visit if you going to Nandi Hills.
