Gavi Gangadhareshwara Temple - Review
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Gavipuram Cave Temple is an ancient temple, possibly built in the 9th century. It has a rare idol of Agni, the Fire God. A visit to the temple is believed to cure every eye disease. The forecourt contains stone discs, the function of which is still a puzzle.
The inner sactum is built in such a way that only during the time around the summer and winter solstice, will the sun rays pass through the horns of the Nandi Bull (situated in front on the entrance and fall on the Shivlingam within the shrine. This gives an idea about the extensive knowledge or architecture and astrology in those times, which are still holding true.

The temple is famous for its mysterious stone discs in the forecourt and the exact planning allowing the sun to shine on shrine in certain time of the year.
One of the oldest temples in Bengaluru, a fine example of rock cut architecture. The peace and quiet is palpable even in the midst of chanting mantras. Make sure you keep your head low as the ceiling is too low.
