  • I generally like temples. This one was not too busy. Lots of smaller places of worship inside. The outside could have been kept cleaner though. Don't forget to buy the Bella coconut burfi from the seller outside and join the esteemed list that includes film personalities
  • Very beautiful and ancient temple to visit in Nanjungud town. It's just next to Kapila river...Once you enter the temple it's so beautiful and you can also see the ancient Hindu architecture...Very blessed feeling...It's most crowded on weekends and Monday's...It has room facilities as well..
