Temples Near Yemalur

Yemalur is a small hamlet behind the old HAL Airport. Yemalur is about 2 kms from the Old Airport Road intersection (near Marathahalli). For the benefit of the apartment dwellers, I am listing down the temples in the area, so that one can visit them.

Shiva Temple, Yemalur
The Shiva temple is quite big, and is built of white granite, and needless to say its quite peaceful. The temple has a scaled down version of Kempfort Lord Shiva on the lawn, and is an impressive sight indeed. The temple has idols of Lord Ganesha, Shiva Linga and Goddess Parvathi.

Anjaneya Temple
The temple seems to be a very ancient one, as one can observe from the structure. The temple is quiet small, but has a pretty small "Anjaneya" idol.

This temple is situated about 100 metres next to Logica CMG. The temple is quite calm and powerful what with Goddess Chamundeswari on a Lion. The temple is known for the Satyanarayana Pooja, performed on every Pournami.
