Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple

Words will not be enough to describe the unparalleled beauty of Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple situated in Karnataka. Just 60km away from state capital Bengaluru, this temple is a must visit if you have a deep interest in India’s ancient heritage. My passion to explore such places drew me to the temple. Thanks to Google map, me and my friend managed to reach the place within 1 ½ hours from Bengaluru. Between our journey, we also sought help from local people. Though language was a bit of problem, we managed to overcome it. Located in Nandi Hills Area, this temple attracts a large number of devotees everyday.

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the construction of the temple dates back to the ninth century. Just walk around and admire the beauty of the Dravidian style of architecture.

You can read more about the temple’s history and architecture here.

Next time when you are in Bengaluru, try to explore this majestic temple.

Have you ever seen such a grand temple in your life ?

Temples Of Bali

There goes without saying that Indonesia is famous for its magnificent beaches, which beckons millions of tourists every year. However, one simply can’t ignore their hundreds of impressive temples. Be it Pura Taman Saraswati or Uluwatu Temple. Their exquisite architectures will leave you awe-struck. My joy for discovering prominent Hindu temples in Bali was an exhilarating experience.

Every temple has a history to tell. Observe them deeply and you will experience spirituality awakening inside you. I have clicked hundreds of images of the famous temples, which might entice you take a trip to Indonesia.
But before visiting a temple, there are certain rules one should keep in mind. Respect the deities and don’t touch them. Dress properly. Yes, it is mandatory. If you forget to dress properly, many temples also offer clothes with which you can cover yourself.

Random Snaps Of Kuala Lumpur

So much to see in this world yet so little time on my hands. It happens to me every time whenever I hit a foreign country. And this time happened in Kuala Lumpur. Notwithstanding, I managed to click couple of images of this cosmopolitan city, especially colorful buildings. I simply adore them. Here, I am sharing some of my random snaps of Kuala Lumpur.

Words will not be enough to describe the stunning 16th century temple, which is just 140km from Bengaluru. I was enthralled by the huge temple complex and its architectural splendors. Dedicated to Lord Veerabhadra, the temple could be divided in three main parts – Mukha mantapa, arda mantapa and the garbhagriha. The Vijayanagara architectural style is quite visible on the temple.

And one can clearly notice carvings and paintings at almost every part of the temple.

One of the most attractive features of the temple is a massive monolith structure of Nagalinga. Overall, the whole temple is a masterpiece.

How I reached the place: I took a city bus from Gunjur Pallaya (where I was staying) to Kempegowda Bus Station. It took me around 1 hour and 15 minutes. From Kempegowda, I took another bus to Hindupur. The bus journey was approximately 3 and half hour journey. From Hindupur, I boarded another bus to reach the temple. So basically it was a one day trip from Bengaluru.
