It is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.HistoryThe original temple in the complex, identified as one of the oldest temples of Karnataka, dates back to the early 9th century. The earliest inscriptions referring to the construction of the temple for Shiva, according to the Archaeological Survey of India, are from Nolamba dynasty ruler Nolambadiraja and the Rashtrakuta emperor Govinda III dated c.806, and copper plates of the Bana rulers Jayateja and Dattiya of about c.810. The temple was later under the patronage of successive notable South Indian dynasties: the Ganga Dynasty, the Chola dynasty, the Hoysala Empire and the Vijayanagara Empire. In the post medieval era, the local chiefs of Chikaballapura and the rulers of the Mysore Kingdom (Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan) controlled the region before it eventually came under British rule after the death of Tipu Sultan in c.1799. The architectural style is Dravidian. The temple is located at a distance of 60 km from Bangalore. The temple is protected as a monument of national importance by the Archaeological Survey of India.Take a look at our Chikkaballapur journey site to schedule your visit to Bhoga Nandishwara Temple and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Wonderful temple. If you are fond of arts, stone carvings, ancient architecture you should visit this place once. Not so well maintained the surrounding's but if that's not the reason to go I strongly recommended to visit.
Very beautiful temple!! Calm and peaceful atmosphere. Have a very big garden with trees and lawns. The pond is a beautiful sight. It's a functioning temple and the antique looks are incomparable with any other temple. Have plenty of parking spaces around the temple.
