Dodda Ganapathi Temple - Review
Located at the famous Bull temple road in Bangalore, the Dodda Ganapathi temple is yet another jewel in the temple trail of the city. Dodda Ganesha Temple at Basavanagudi was constructed by Kempegowda I, the founder of Bangalore. It is believed that while taking a stroll here, Kempegowda found a number of rocks and one of the boulders that had a shape of Ganesha engraved on them. Thereafter, Kempegowda ordered his sculptors to convert the shape into a massive as well as fantastic single stone idol of Lord Ganesha. Standing 18 ft tall in height and 16 ft wide, this idol looks impressive and huge.

The place is protected ancient monument. A large bull idol seated in the temple. Open space is there in front of temple. Small vendors sell variety of goods here. There is a place for safekeeping your shoes for small fee of 2 RS per pair.
Decent , quit and spiritual place to visit. Around the temple there is rock garden. This place not charging any money from tourist. Actual name of this temple is "Doddabasavanna temple". So if you are traveling through local travel then better to tell this name. You can spend good time here.

A lovely temple famous for its big black bull made out of stone. It is worshipped on a regular basis and you can enter the temple and touch the bull and also walk around the entire structure. The inside of the temple is devoid of light, so watch your steps. This is one of the typical temples constructed in south Indian style of architecture.
