Few places can pull you back to an entire era and Lepakshi is definitely one of them. HolidayIQ scout Soumyajit says, "Nice getaway near Bangalore on the NH 7 highway. It's anarchaeological marvel with the big bull and the Veerbhadra temple. The temperature is quite hot so its best to avoid summers as it might get very difficult to walk in bare foot over the stones."
