One of the highlights of our recent travel to India was visiting some of the spectacular Hindu temples. While staying in Bangalore, I was invited to join a girls-only outing to Lepakshi, to visit the 16th-century Veerabhadra temple.
Four of us hired a car and driver for the day and made the 120 km journey north of Bangalore. On our way back to the city, we also stopped at the Bhoganandishwara Temple in the Nandi Hills.
The Veerabhadra temple is famous for its intricate carvings and immaculately preserved paintings. The Bhoganandishwara Temple is lesser known but has beautiful carvings. Rather than try to describe them in words, I’d like to share a photo essay of our day-trip to the temples of Lepakshi and Bhoganandishwara.
If you’d like to see more photos from the Veerabhadra temple in Lepakshi and the Bhoganandishwara Temple you can visit the Temples of India Gallery on ACM Photography.com or visit our Facebook Fan page.
