The temple is dedicated to Lord Subrahmanya and Lord Lakshmi Narasimha. It is believed that the idol of Subrahmanya is self originated. The uniqueness of the temple is, Sri Subrahmanya is facing east and Sri Lakshmi Narasimha is facing west in a single image. One can have darshan of Lord Narasimha through a mirror placed rear side. First time I went there, I was not able to make it out.

Route Information:

Ghati Subrahmanya – Ghati Subrahmanya is about 53 kms from Yelhanka, Bangalore. One needs to take the road towards Doddaballapur, and from Doddaballapur it is about 15kms. Just as you reach MakaliDurg railway station, take the road to the right. This will lead you to the temple.

MakaliDurg Fort – From the MakaliDurg Railway Station, to the base of the hill is exactly 2 kms. Walk on the railway track enjoying nature. On the left hand you will come across a temple of Lord Krishna. Cross the temple and take the road which will lead you to the fort. The climb to the top can be covered in 1 hr as informed by locals. In case you are more adventurous, climb straight towards the top. Be careful of snakes and thorny bushes.
