What are the best temples in Bangalore?

I’m taking a solo side trip to Bangalore when I go to Chennai later this year and everyone keeps telling me they have amazing temples there. I’m only going for about 3-4 days at the most so I need to be somewhat selective. What temples should I make sure not to miss?

    top answer by

    Bangalore ISKCON Temple (this is an architectural masterpiece set on a seven-acre hillock called the 'Hare Krishna Hill')

    Bangalore Dharmaraya Temple ( has two exceptionally fine images of Lord Krishna and Dharmaraja - hero of the epic 'Mahabharata)

    Bangalore Sri Venugopalaswamy Krishna Temple (known for its splendid architecture)

    Bangalore Bull Temple (it has a monolithic bull, made of gray granite which is 4.5 mts high and 6.5 mts long, located near Basavanagudi area, South Bangalore)

    Bangalore Gavi Gangadhareshwara Swami Temple (The temple back to nearly 500 years)

    Bangalore Sri Kanyaka Parmeshwari Temple (unique because of its Marble work )

    All these temples are within/close to Bangalore city and Each temple will be having timings for moving in. So you need to be aware of that. As a best suggestion Most of the temples will be open between 6:00 AM to 8:00 P.M with some temples having breaks in between. so plan accordingly.

    But my suggestion to you here will be you must go to Sringeri Temple which is 325 km far from Bangalore and you will absolutely fall in love with the place beauty, architecture and vicinity. If you love to visit this place you can go to Mangalore (as this is the nearby airport). You can find some other good temples close to mangalore as well.

    My suggestion would be move to mangalore instead of bangalore to enjoy your trip. If you need more information here on mangalore i'm ready to provide.

    Wish you a Happy and Safe Journey :)

    Bangalore the city itself is not that well known for its temples. The biggest i believe is the Arya Samaj, the one in Malleswaram, but its a newly built one not an old classic one. For significant older temples and historical landmarks you need to plan trips out side of the city.

    Following two links provide the best compilation.

    http://goindia.about.com/od/cities/tp/spiritual-bangalore.htm

    I would suggest older temple over the new ones. Don't miss Bull Temple, Chokkanathaswamy Temple, Gavi Gangadhareshwara Swami Temple, Naganatheswara Temple, Someshwara temple.

    If you are so interested in temples, you must take a day trip to Halebīd and Belur. On the way, in Shravanabelagola, huge monolithic idol of Mahaveer is also amazing.

    Don't miss going to The Art of Living ashram. The temple there looks like a massive wedding cake, and the grounds are very peaceful. I've written several blog posts about Bangalore on my blog like this one.
