After all it was a boredom weekend...all friends had went home for easter holidays.....and i badly wanted to go somewhere....and we fixed it to Lepakshi which is famous for veerabhadra temple and its Nandi bull.
Lepakshi, located in anantapur district of andhra pradesh and is 120 kms from Bangalore.I need to make it as a budget trip..so packed breakfast with us and we started off from home at sharp six in the morning and took the outer ring road
Hsr layout - Marathahalli - Hennur - Hebbal - Checkpost - Lepakshi
There are two toll booths towards Lepakshi , one near the airport and one at andhra border , after crossing the second toll booth travel 5 kms , you reach the check post,from there turn left, after 12 kms you can see the huge nandi to your right. APTC runs a hotel with accommodation there.
Lepakshi is protected by the archaeological survey department of India.
We spend almost one hour at the temple and was back home at 12.30 pm.
