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.
