Mandargiri Jain Temple is located around 50km from Hessaraghatta Main Road in Bangalore. It was my first mini trip of the year 2021 and also my first with my baby.
It is a smooth 1 hour drive with 2 tolls on the way out. There is a small cut on the main road and you reach MandarGiri within 5 minutes of leaving the main road.
What to See
1. Peacock temple : the entry is free but you have to remove your shoes at the gate and walk to the temple. It is easy to manage with a kid. However, to go inside the temple you have to go up the stairs.
