Kadu Mallikarjunaswamy Temple, Bangalore

Kadu Mallikarjunaswamy Temple in Bangalore is located in Malleswaram region. The temple is built on a hilly area and temple itself on a hill top. 



As per the historic records the temple was built in the 17th century A.D. by Venkoji, the brother of the Maratha King Shivaji.



A flight of 40 steps leads to the temple and as one enters inside one can see main sancum and Parijata tree. 



The presiding deity of the temple Lord Shiva in the form of Linga. This linga is much older than the temple, while the other idols accompanying Ganesha, Parvathi, Subramanya and many other are new additions.



This temple has been one of the oldest temple in the city and is very colourful.

I know I repeat myself, but the architecture of these temples is just amazing. I just don't know how they constructed them with so little modern equipment.
