A booming hub for tech, Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) is one of India’s most cosmopolitan cities. In addition to its modern businesslike side, the city has a long tradition of spirituality evident in its large collection of temples, many of which are centuries old. See below for our top picks of temples in Bengaluru.

Bull Temple

Located in Basavanagudi and dating back to the 16th century, Bull Temple (aka Dodda Basavana Gudi) was constructed under orders of the Vijayanagara Empire, which at the time ruled much of South India. The temple itself is relatively modest in size, though its 15-foot-tall (4.5-meter-tall) statue of Nandi, Lord Shiva’s bull, is one of the largest in existence.

Dodda Ganesha Temple

Also known as the cave temple, this unique temple dedicated to Lord Shiva was carved out of a single solid rock in the 9th century, making it one of the oldest places of worship in town. As well as a statue of Nandi and an icon representing Lord Shiva, it also features a sculpture of Agni, the two-headed, seven-handed, three-legged fire god.
