Brahadeshwara Temple Reviews

Walking distance from old bus stand. 5km from new bus stand (Fare INR 5/- on bus). Inside temple one can keep their luggage and shoes in lockers. Photography allowed inside the campus. During day it's pretty painful to walk bare footed over the rocks (it is advised to wear shocks if possible to avoid the heat)
