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.

It is a unique temple in Bengaluru. It is made after cutting heal hill stone. Temple is below normal ground level. Nice and unique temple.
It's a historical place and an ancient temple. Don't miss the annual hindu new year festival where the sun rays touches Lords feet. Serene experience just by being there. Did I say you need to bow while taking pradakshina and this is a cave temple?! Best place to take your kids and feel proud of Indian culture and heritage. Better than taking them to Goa and showing a dead man's finger nails..
Most devine Cave Shiva Temple. One of the oldest temples in Bangalore with historical, architectural and spiritual significance. One of its kind.
Visiting for theblast 25 years...Very spiritual place. Good for meditation...But need to come early...
Nice place.. Need to keep more cleaner, but was a good experience to watch in BENGALURU
