Famous Temples in Bangalore

Kempfort Shiva Temple
Famous temples in bangalore

It all began when RVM, the founder of the temple, had a vision during one of his morning 'thought time'; a vision to build a temple where a huge statue of Lord Shiva would stand, building Faith, Hope and Belief for generations to come. He was surprised, because when this inspiration struck him, he had no money, no land, and no plan. All he had was this dream. But RVM was fully convinced that this dream was in fact a message from God. Thus he started trying his best to make this dream come true. With God by his side, he soon found an apt property in Bangalore, arranged funds for the project and found an architect who would bring his dream into a reality.

Construction of the 65-feet-tall Lord Shiva idol and the temple started in 1994. On February 26, 1995, on the auspicious day of Maha Shivaratri, the Shiva Temple was inaugurated. Sri Shankaracharya of Shringeri (who is believed to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva himself) dedicated the Shiv Mandir to the public. The white statue of the Vignaharan Ganapati is seated close to the entrance, blessing you with his right hand and a modak in his left hand. Apart from this the temple features the Navgraha temple, Pratyaksh Ling, a replica of Mansarovar Lake and Upchaar Patthar, which is a healing stone known to have magically cured numerous ailing patients

1: @ The Chamarajashwara Temple is a beautiful temple in Bangalore, regarded as one of the highest Hindu seats....

It gives wrong impression that the Temple is located in Bangalore. It should have been Karnataka instead. More correctly in Chamarajanagar District of Karnataka.

@ This temple was built in the memory of Shri Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar, the father of Mummadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar.....

This is again wrong. Jaya Chamarajendra Wadiyar was the last King of Mysore ( Born: 1919; Rule: 1940-1950; Died: 1974) and great grand son of Mummadi Krishna Raja Wadiyar.

The Temple was built in memory of Khasa Chamaraja Wodeyar who was the nominal Ruler of Mysore from 1776-1796 when Hyder and Tipu held sway over the affairs. Ari Kutara was his birth place and after the Temple and Town was built it was named as Chamaraja Nagar, which is now a District Head Quarters.

@ The best way to reach the temple town of Chamarajanagar is by road. This is well connected by buses and is 185 kms from Bangalore....

This is again wrong. Chamaraja Nagar is connected by Train also. Mysore city is the hot spot of Tourist and anything else should devolve around this visit. Nanjangud is another important sacred Temple town. Near by Forests of Bandipur and B.R>b Hills are added attractions for Tourists looking for variety. Thus any tour should be by Road from Mysore to Nanjangud- Chmaraja Nagar- BR Hills/ Bandipur.

Mysore is also connected by Air.
