Sri Gavi Gangadhareswara Temple

This ancient temple demonstrates the amazing architectural and astronomical skills of its sculptors and artists. On the festival of Makara Sankranti, which occurs on the 14th or 15th of January every year, the Sun's rays always pass through the horns of Nandi the bull, and light up the sacred Shiva Lingam. This unique phenomenon can be witnessed only for one hour, between 5:00 and 6:00 pm on this particular day.

Sri Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple was cut out of a rock somewhere around the ninth century. It was later renovated by Kempe Gowda, the founder of Bangalore. The temple houses a unique image of Agni, the God of Fire, probably the only one of its kind in all of Southern India. To the left of the main entrance is a splendid image of Shakti Ganapathi, with 12 hands. There are four monolith pillars in the courtyard, which represent Damaru, Thrishula and two fans.

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this temple is situated in Gavipuram Guttahalli, about 3 km from KR City Market.

Jawaharlal Planetarium

Established in 1989, Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium counts among the popular tourist attractions of Bangalore. There is a sky theater inside the planetarium, with a huge dome fifteen meters in diameter. It has a seating capacity of 225 and serves as the venue for two astronomy shows daily, 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm, with the exception of Mondays.

The shows held here are both enjoyable and informative, with a great deal of facual knowledge about astronomy. All seats provide a good view. There is also an observatory inside the planetarium, with a professional six-inch code refractor telescope. The main aim behind establishing the planetarium was to promote an understanding of astronomy amongst students as well as others. A sightseeing tour of Bengaluru must include a visit to the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium, located on T. Chowdiah Road.
