Someshwara Temple, Mulbagal

Historical town of Mulbagal has many temples of ancient period. One of the temple among them is Someshwara Temple.



This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The Shiva linga here is similar to that at sacred Kashi or Varanasi. Outside the temple there is a big Nandi.



The temple looks externally simple when compared to the pillars inside. The pillars are beautifully carved with simple yet elegant sculptures.



The pillars are carved with small carvings which depict stories from epics.

India is so beautiful. I wish I could travel there someday. I read from a seasoned travel blogger that when you go to India, you can't help but fall in love with the country, its culture, people and land.

Thank you all.

Kalpana: Mulbagal is on the way from Bangalore to Kolar. A slight deviation from highway close to Kolar will take one to this place.
