Architectural Building · Landmark
Shivoham Shiva Temple, recently built in 1995, is rumored to hold the most powerful Shiva statue in the world. Due to the gigantic idol, thousands of devotees visit each year to pay their respects at the temple, whose creation itself is a bit of a marvel. Ravi V. Melwani, founder of the temple, hired a sculptor named Kashinath, who molded the statue with his bare hands, without a plan or measuring tool. At the entrance, find the largest Shiva Linga gate in the city. Farther in, find a Lord Ganesha statue as well as two bell towers that make the location of the healing stones, which are said to have miraculous healing powers. Make Shivoham Shiva Temple a centerpiece of your Bengaluru vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bengaluru visit planning website.

  • This is good for one time visiting. You will feel good here. However, most commercial temple in the Bangalore. Basically, this is not a temple. Beaware, ask the tickets Rs 50 for entry only. Otherwise they will give you Rs.150 per head. If you are going there for pray purpose.
  • Peaceful It is a small and a beautiful temple with a feeling of Himalayas around. This tall and beautifully structured Shiva idol is the main attraction of the temple. The pathway to it is very dark and long and it looks like a tunnel that you have to pass through reach the Shiva idol. Water falls from his hair and you can actually feel the drops and mist in the premises.
