  • Awesome temple... Stone carvings are simply beautiful. You can find Sita foot. Most of hanging pillars are attached with mortar at the bottom except one. Cannot visit this in summer time. The stone will be too hot to walk. Entire temple is on a rock. Must visit. One can spend whole day admiring the carvings and knowing the story behind them.
  • Excellent drive for about 140kms from Bangalore. If you are looking to spend some time on the road with your loved ones, this might just be the place. The temple is nice and old with a levitating pillar being the centre of attraction. Overall quite pleasant. Tip: try to visit the place early in the day to avoid crowds.
