Shiv Mandir Temple - Review
Founded by RVM, the Shiv Mandir was constructed as the result of a vision during one of his morning ‘thought time’; a vision to build a temple where a huge statue of Lord Shiva would stand, building Faith, Hope and Belief for generations to come. As an inspiration from that vision, this temple was constructed and has finally become one of the attractions of the city. It is due to the presence of such splendid temples that Bangalore temple trail has become historic and something that you can’t miss during a trip to the city.

Shiv Mandir Temple, Bengaluru Reviews
Don't be misguided, this isn't a temple but a religion-themed museum. Skip this if you can. Apart from huge statues of lord Shiva and Ganesha, there isn't much to see or do but get fleeced. You will be asked to purchase tickets strategically at various locations within the temple. It felt more like an amusement park where you pay for the entrance and then pay for rides, food, drinks and everything under the sun. If religious entertainment is on your agenda, then you won't be disappointed. The basement park is dark and unclean, definitely not worth the parking ticket they charge.
I stayed near by this temple for 2-3 years. I visit this place most often. There are couple of things which you can explore here. A bigger Idol of lord Ganesha at entrance and lord Shiva Idol after you enter in to the temple. You'll find a peaceful atmosphere inside the temple. It will be more crowded during festivals. I would prefer to go in normal days only. Everything is good at this temple but I would say this is a commercial place because you have to pay for most of the places inside the temple.
From great lovable experience now it is just turned out into monetary based temple. You can’t visit closer if you don’t have money. Minimum 150rs required to visit the entire temple. Don’t what happened ? Why suddenly it is turned into money making place ? Feel for poor people. Beside money making place, it is wonderful experience being here. Toilet facility, car parking is available. Your time and money is worth but is it really needed is the question. Siva is absolutely breath taking and gorgeous.
It's a pure commerical centre for robbing devotees of their faith.. not even money. In true sense.. a tourist spot for tourists and no longer a temple for devotion, and faith. A temple which is commercial (and not even economical).. cant be called a temple anymore.... Talking religiously... If u need money to find inner peace.... Then it's not where I wanna go anymore. I have boycott this place personally ( as did my whole family, since the management has started demanding money for entry) . I rather prefer a calm peaceful temple just 200m away to seek my inner peace a secluded corner where I see my Lord and enjoy the company of kind hearted people around me. Good luck for all who wanna support the extortion. 😁
What an amazing temple in Bangalore! It's beautiful and there is a very systematic approach to viewing the temple and doing puja there. It's really one of a kind. You can take your time through the temple and really enjoy it. Go for it if you are in Bangalore.
