Hello Guys,
This is my travelogue to a pilgrim centre called Kotilingeshwara.
This was done in previous year July.
A must visit place guys.
In this area there is exactly 1 crore Shivaling.
Where ever you see its Shivaling.

Hey buddy its Approx 105 kms from Bangalore.
Route Map: Bangalore >> Hoskote >> Kolar (bypass - Turn right at the railway gate) >> Bangarpet (Turn left after 5 kms) >> Kotilingeshwara >> Kolar (Bypass - same route back) >> Hoskote >> Bangalore

The best place for having lunch Woody's Hotel along Kolar Highway.
Its the only place which serves clean food.
The road conditions are pretty bad once you reach kolar railway gate
Rest all the repair of road was going on.
Now the things might have changed.

How come I missed this thread? I think I have heard about this place before. There’s one less than 1 crore shivalingas and It is said that they were made by a devotee of Lord Shiva and story is long. Though I am not sure if this was the place, Else I could be wrong. Anyways, as always fantastic pictures mukesh.

Drive Safe,
