Technology for the masses (Contd) …

One more instance that I ran into. We had gone out for dinner to Sree Nandhini Palace, which is located in New BEL Road opposite to Beijing Bites, with one of my colleagues. Though I have visited this place many number of times, this was the first time I have noticed them using technology.

WiFi was installed in the whole area. Waiters were carrying iPhones instead of the regular pen and paper to take the orders. They have built in an customize application to run on them to take the orders as well as print them to a network printer near the counter.

Electronic gadgets being part of the common man shows the progress that India has made and about the economic reforms that it have undergone.

We were suppose to visit this place last week itslf but it did not materialize due one or the other. Shanmukha, means a ‘Six Faced God’. A huge six faced statue of Lord Shiva is built therein.

This temple is built on top of a barren Hillock in Rajarajeshwari Nagar. The foundation of Shrunga Giri was laid on 3rd March 1995. Dr. Arunachalam was the chief architect and visionary for the project. Inside the temple, you find various statue’s of Lord Ganesh.

On the base, is the small temple dedicated to Panchamuki Ganesh (Murgan).

A devi temple is also located just opposite to the Shanmuka Temple.

Route Information:

The temple is located in Rajarajeshwari. While going on the Bangalore-Mysore highway, you get the arch near the Gopalan Mall. Take the left and travel straight up.

Take a left just after Iyengar’s Cool Palace and Just Bake, which will directly lead you to the temple.

You can have a view of the temple from the NICE road also.
