The Shiva Temple, Bangalore, India

The Shiva Temple (or Shiv Mandir) is a must visit for all tourists. You will find a Shiv Lingam, the projection of Hindu Lord Shiva. The temple also has a statue of lord in a yoga posture that is 65foot high, biggest in the country. The view is just mesmerizing. The statue is surrounded by a small pond where in people throw coins to fulfill their wishes after chanting prayers too their deity.

It all began when RVM, the founder of the temple, one morning, envisioned something different: a dream to build a temple with a gigantic statue of Lord Shiva, with River Ganga flowing out of his matted hair, meditating in an environment of peace, serenity and tranquility amidst the Himalayas. The result is absolutely gorgeous!!
