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.

Veerabhadra Temple – India’s Pride

My wish to visit Lepakshi’s famous Veerabhadra Temple and explore its architectural beauty has come true! I managed to visit the place during my recent rip to Bengaluru.

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.

Glimpses Of My Tour To Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur has a lot to offer when it comes to exploring the city as a tourist.

During my very short trip, I managed to visit several of the popular tourist destinations, thanks to the city’s efficient metro or rapid transit system.

Being new to the city, I decided to explore Kuala Lumpur on the google before starting my trip, just to ensure that I do not miss out on any attractive or popular tourist spot.

Besides, I also explored Kuala Lumpur’s spectacular Thean Hou Templ, which you can read here.

At last I could only say that I wish I had more time in my hand to cover other popular tourist spots like Batu Cave and Petronas Tower. May be next time!

P.S- Besides, metro, I also used popular Grab App to reach some of my destinations without much hassle.

To make your journey simpler and easier you can buy a local simcard and download the app on your phone.

Devanahalli’s Vibrant Venugopala Swamy Temple

There are too many temples be it ancient or modern in Karnataka. And One is bound to encounter with a temple in every nook and corner of a street in the state. These incredible temples entice me to explore more and more amazing structures in our country.

While driving on the Bellary road on NH – 7, me and my friend were unexpectedly stumbled upon an ancient temple. We had planned to explore Devanahalli Fort but we changed our mind due to hot sunny day. Instead, we visited Sri Venugopala Swamy temple, dedicated to a form of the Hindu God Vishnu.

Located in Devanahalli town, the temple is quite small but its ambiance is serene and vibrant.

The temple, built in the Dravidian style of architecture, is a protected monument under the Karnataka state division of the Archaeological Survey of India.

Apart from Venugopala temple, one can also find a number of other temples in the town. So do not limit yourself to this temple as this town houses a number of outstanding places of worship.
