Drive to Ghati Subramanya Temple

Ghati Subramanya is one of the popular pilgrim centers located near Doddaballapur of Bangalore Rural district. Ghati Subrahmanya is located about 60 Kms from Bangalore.

The temple here is dedicated to Lord Subramanya and Lord Lakshmi Narasimha. It is believed that the idol of Shri subrahmanya is self originated. The uniqueness of the temple is, Sri Subrahmanya is facing east and Sri Lakshmi Narasimha is facing west in a single image. One can have darshan of Lord Narasimha through a mirror placed rear side.

This unique and ancient temple attracts many a pilgrims. Special pooja's will be performed the event of Brahmarathotsava, i.e., on the day of Pushya shudda Shashti. Narasimha Jayanti is other major festival celebrated here. Marriage functions are also held here.

It is Lord Murugan's temple and very much in tradition with the "Kukke" subramanya temple. Here you find him in the "Naga" avathar and all the "sarpa (snake) dosha" related poojas are performed here.

Free lunch is provided daily for the devotees.

How to Reach
Take the road from Hebbal towards Bangalore International Airport (Devanahalli). Before touching Yelahanka, take a slight left on the service road, and proceed towards Yelahanka level crossing. After about a KM you will see the Yelahanka Traffic Police Station on the left. Take a left turn immediately after this, and proceed straight to Doddaballapur.

Another route is to proceed straight towards Devanahalli. After Devanahalli bus stand, there is a left turn that moves towards Doddaballapur. Proceed along here until you reach the road coming from Bangalore (Hindupur Road). Take a right here and proceed for about 5 kms, you would be in Doddaballapur.

From D.B.Pura, proceed straight until you see the arch towards Ghati Subramanya. Ask locals for directions (they are generally helpful).

My Travel
On a gloomy noon, around 3:15 PM we started off. At around 4:00 PM, just as I crossed Yelahanka the sky blackened, and mother nature presented her beauty !

With bit of difficulty, in controlling my nature loving personality and driving personality, I managed to wade through the tar in the drizzle towards Doddaballapur.

I mistakenly took a slight deviation towards Doddaballapur Railway station, and took a moment to capture this.

Then, got back on track and proceeded straight for about 5 kms. There was a junction, with direction boards. Went straight for about 3 kms and found the arch showing the entrance to the road to Ghati Subramanya.

Beleive me the road was very scenic and the apt time, is to drive around during cloudly evenings. We had to pass through one more level crossing, and it was real fun driving in those roads. There were lot of road side vegetable sellers, selling fresh vegetables. We had decided to check them on our return and proceed.

Just as you near Ghati, the road turns into a scenic motorway, with slopes and curves, it makes for a real chilling drive.

We reached Ghati around 5:30 PM. There was ample parking space, but we parked near a shop, and were forced to buy garlands there (for free parking) :-) After taking a few snaps outside, we had a good darshan at the temple. Not being able to identify the deity, "where is Subramanya", I asked the priest, and he helped me gleefully by showing his hand :-) Infact, I was only loooking at Lord Narasimha, and then noticed Lord Subramanya.

After buying a few photographs of the Unique B/W Lord Muruga, and some snaps of the Monkeys around, in the drizzle, we ran towards the car, and started off around 6:15 PM... On our return, we bought some fresh vegetables, in the drizzle. It was real fun...

The return drive from Doddabalapur towards Yelahanka was even more fun. The light began to fade and traffic piled up (though all fast moving traffic). It was real fun driving on 2 lane roads during drizzle, waiting for the right moment for overtaking and cruising ahead. Without much fuss, we reached Hebbal flyover around 7:30 PM and after some shopping & dining at Esteem Mall, we reached home around 9:00 PM.

It was a really enjoyable drive of about 130 kms, and it happened during the right time (and it was my first noticeably long journey on my i10 with the new Michelins).

I'd been to same place on my bike and it was all the more fun. It was not raining when i went and I touched nice speed on the way to temple.

That temple as you have said is famous for Sarpa Dosha Vimochanam. Ppl keep doing poojas all round the clock it seems.

It is also home god for many people in bangalore.

I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have
something to add to the conversation. Usually it's triggered by the passion displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post "Drive to Ghati Subramanya Temple". I was moved enough to drop a thought ;) I do have 2 questions for you if it's okay.
Is it only me or do some of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead
folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites,
I'd like to keep up with you. Would you list every one of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
