The Bheemalingeswara Temple
Famous temples in bangalore

The Bheemalingeswara Temple is one of the most immaculate and beautiful temples you shall ever see. The structure of the temple is gorgeous and it truly reflects the beauty of Hinduism. It has thousands of visitors every year and is one of those places that are definitely worth visiting.

The Bheemalingeswara temple is believed to have been built by Bheema, who was one of the Pandavas. Kaivara was known as Ekachakrapuram during the time of the Mahabharatha. It was here that the Pandavas spent a year in hiding after escaping the attempt of their lives at the house of lac. It was here too, that Bheema killed Bakasura, the demon who was terrifying the people of this region.

How To Reach: Kaivara, where Bheemalingeswara temple is located, is about 70 km from Bangalore. You easily get buses from Bangalore city. You would have to get down at Kaivara cross and then proceed three kilometers inward to reach Kaivara town.

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.
