Scientific Siva Temple

A beautiful cave temple amidst greenery. It is one of the important tourist attractions of Bangalore. The cave temple with Sun's rays falling directly on Siva's Idol on Sankranti day, is a scientific marvel. There is no entrance fee. A very holy place to visit with family.

Rays of goodness and good connectivity

It is about 5 km from city Bus Stop and 6 km from Kalasipalyam. Actually it is under cave, a temple of Lord Shiva. Here markings can be seen that in olden days people used to KASI from this temple under ground passage. At Makarasankranti Rays from top of temple will fall directly on Linga. Lakhs of people used to visit the temple on that day. I finally advice travellers to visit this place and see miracle in life.

Awesome temple

Its an amazing feeling after entering into this temple. Must visit where you are in Bangalore to this Shiva cave temple. Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple is near Bull temple area, around 15min walk from Bull temple. This is a functioning temple with Lord Shiva as the main deity. The sanctum Sanctorum is under a big rock giving the feeling of this being a cave temple.

Temple of miracle

It is the temple of lord Shiva which is situated in the canter heart of the Bangalore city according to sculpture written on a wall we can see the underground passage from this temple to the Kashi. People used to go to Kashi in this under route only, the passage is now closed and written in a album or a photo.We get a huge vibrations from the linga of Shiva from which we can get a mental peace and harmony, the light or sun rays fall on directly to the lingam on day to the next day on Ugadi, the people come to see this miracle directly every year after Ugadi in the back side of the lingam we can see the variety and various types of status of god such as Ashtakanya, Varahaswamy, Ganesha, Subramanya etc. The people once visit this to get a brighter life.Another important note is that South Indian film star Rajinikanth will come here and take blessing from god every year he only said that he got the success. The people used to get the blessings on every Thursday and Monday in those days we can see full alankarams and decorations. Various types of prasadam is also available here. We can get buses of govt and autos from majestic bus stand to this place at a reasonable price at in Bangalore price it is about 8kms from Kempegowda Bus Stand.

A cleverly done rock cut

If you are visiting Bangalore and by chance if you are staying in South Bangalore then you must visit this temple. Such an ancient temple which was built in rock (Rock Cut) nicely and cleverly. You will be amazed when you get inside. On Maha Sankranthi sun's rays falls directly on the Shiva Linga inside the temple. Lot of people will gather on this day to see this magical moments.

A temple to spend a good time

As the lord Shiva idol is inside the cave without any sunlight to enter, the cave is designed in such a way on Jan 14th of every year you will be witnessing the sun rays to enter inside the cave & emits on lords Shiva idol. Only on that particular day & for few hrs & the rest of the days there is no sunrays which enter through the cave & on this day all the devotees around globe they drop in & celebrate. This is one of my best temples where I would love to go & spend time rather than spending time on commercialized temples.
