Mode of Transport: Bajaj Platina 125 cc

Bhoganandishwara Temple is perhaps the finest and the most ornate of the Dravidian temples. The whole temple consists of twin temples, Bhoganandishwara on the north while Arunachalaleshwara on the South. The temple was built by Ratnavali consort of the Bana King Bana Vidhyadhara at a record A.D.810.

Route Information:

Shani Temple: The temple is located at around 45 kms from Bangalore on NH7 towards Chikkaballapur. As you move towards the Chikkaballapur Taluk, you will find the temple on your right. The hotel Shanthi Sagar is located opposite to it besides a big banyan tree.


Bhoganandishwara Temple: Bhoganandishwara Temple is about 55 kms from Bangalore. Start towards Chikkaballapura on NH-7. After about 10 kms from the Airport crossing, turn towards left towards Nandi Hills. You will find a T junction (dead end), the left goes to Nandi Hills while the right goes towards Muddenahalli. Take the right here. After traveling almost 7 kms from there you will find the temple.

    hi, is there facilities for cooking over here and other rest room facilities here if a marriage is organised. Can somebody who has taken part in the marriage at this location provide me the details. Thanks in advance

    There is no facility for cooking, but yes, you can make your own food and carry in there. You can use the open green area to have your food.

    I have not seen the rest rooms, but I am sure it would be there.
