Lepakshi Temple RdLepakshi
This is an ancient temple of God Veerabhadra. It is wonder of pure stone art. This was a memorable bike trip for us. This place is 130 km from the Bangalore city. Best one day bike trip destination.Me and 3 of my friends planned this trip. We started from Bangalore at 7am of a foggy Saturday morning. I guess weather could not be more pleasant than this 😊. We reached there around 10.30 am. We spent one and half hour at the temple and clicked some awesome pics.At 12 we started our journey towards Bangalore again. We had our lunch at a restaurant near Nandi hills junction. By 4 we reached Marathahalli. It was a fun and memorable journey, we hope to continue this kind of journey through out 2017 and keep you posted 😁.
This is a small town in the Mandal Region of the Anantapur District and is considered as the holy abode of Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu and Lord Veerabhadra due to the presence of temples dedicated to them. The most famous out of all is the Veerbhadra Temple. This temple was built by brothers Viranna and Virupanna and is dedicated tp Veerbhadra. The temple is in the Vijayanagara style of architecture. The rock chain, Vastu Purush, hanging pillar, Padmini lace lady, Durga Padam and the Lepakshi sari designs are the main features of this beautiful temple. The lovely paintings on the ceiling depicts scenes from Ramayana and Mahabharata and were made using natural pigments. The Siva's Granite bull or Nandi is another attraction of Lepakshi. The bull wears pretty jewellery and also has a Nagalinga carved out just beside it.
