TEMPLES

Nandi Temple

The temple has a giant bull 4.6 meters tall carved out of a single rock. The Bull temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva's vahana(vehicle). The statue of Nandi is flanked at the back with statues of God Surya and Goddess Chandra on their chariots drawn by the horses. The bull has a small iron plate on its head to prevent it, as tradition says, from growing. It is a sculptural masterpiece.

The sculpture of bull is the holy deity in the temple, also known as "Nandi Temple". The gigantic bull measuring 4.57m in height and 6.10 m in length is carved out of a single rock. Poor farmers were left stun and felt guilty. For their repentance they decided to build a temple for the bull, to their surprise the bull was growing in height.

Shiva temple

This 65-foot high statue depicts Lord Shiva seated in Lotus position with a backdrop of Mount Kailash with the river Ganga flowing from his matted locks. It will be the tower of the temple which will dominate the archetecture but here it is the Shiva statue which takes the prime attention.

There is a unique open air amphitheatre for concerts and festivals.The four temple 'gopurams' are connected by a stunning glazed glass canopy which forms the main 'Hari Naam Kirtan' - a hall of 10,000 square feet.  The hall has wonderful ceiling paintings.

Venkataramanaswamy Temple: This 300-year old temple was, built by Maharajah Chikka Devaraya Wodiyar. It displays some of the best features of Dravidian temple art. The ornate stone pillars, supported by splendid lion brackets, still bear the imprint of the cannon balls, which ruined portions of the temple during the Third Mysore War (1790-1792). After the fall of Tipu in 1799, the Wodiyar dynasty restored the temple to its original grandeur.
