Create an itinerary including Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple
Venture into Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple, a temple carved out of a monolithic rock sometime in the 9th century and later renovated by the founder of the city, Kempe Gowda. If visiting in January, you'll witness a yearly event where the sculpted works allow the sun to illuminate the shivalinga for one hour only--a testament to ancient knowledge and craftsmanship exercised here. As the oldest temple in the region and major architectural landmark, the temple draws steady crowds, so expect to be one of many tourists.
