The outside of the temple has monoliths and pillars which each have different carvings on them. There is also an elevated section which has sand on the ground (the rest of the temple is on rock).
Don’t miss the beautiful tree outside with its distinct shape. I wonder the stories it will tell if it could only talk. It takes around an hour to take in the sights. Perhaps longer if you prefer to analyse the carvings on the wall.
Returning to Bangalore
As you exit the peaceful temple and make your way to the main road, you will find several buses passing by. If your plan is to return to Bangalore by 5 pm, you can catch the private bus which arrives at 1:30 pm IST. Be ready to be pushed aside by other travelers who are in a hurry to grab a coveted seat.
