In case you are interested, you can have a look at this video as well:
Sri Varadaraja Perumal Temple
This is the temple we talked about in our previous post. The temple is a very old one and said to exist from Dwapar Yuga. It said that Arjuna worshipped here during the exile of Pandavas.
The temple is open from 6.00 AM to 11.00 AM during mornings and 5.00 PM to 8.00 PM in evenings.
Sri Kashi Vishwanath temple
Below is the video on the beautiful Shri Kashi Vishwanath temple at Shoolgiri
This temple is located near to Vardaraja Perumal temple and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The goupram is quite impressive, though it looks to be newly created. The main temple premises has other god temples as well.
Sri Ayappa Swamy temple
This temple is just in front of Kashi Wishwanath temple. Another beautiful temple with a beautiful idol of Lord Ayappa. There is also a huge standing idol of Lord Hanuman.
What we have found is that all these temples close at around 11.00 AM in morning time and reopen at 5.00 PM and are the open till 7 to 8.00 PM.
Hence plan your trip accordingly.
The way to reach Shoolgiri is very easy. You have to take the road to Hosur and keep going straight to reach Shoolgiri.
These temples are hardly 1.5 Kms from the national highway. You will see the exit markings for Shoolgiri. Do not take that. Take the flyover after that and exit to service road after the flyover.
Please note that once you enter the village, the road is called as dam road, after around 1 kms , you will see a small road going in. The google map will ask you to turn right. But since there is no concrete road, we tend to get confused and miss that. If you miss this turn, then google will re-roue to another 2 kms. So please keep a note of this.
Friends hope you will like this trip. Do visit and provide your feedback.
Hope you liked our post, Temples near Bangalore – beautiful temples of Shoolgiri. Have a blessed darshan!
