Today, I thought of not going out and was reviewing some blogs on Indiblogger. As I was going through some information, I saw this temple’s pictures. I was very curious about “Pratyangira Devi” as this is a Lion-headed female god and looks very furious. Temples of this deity are very rare and the people who worship this deity are also very less. Hence, I called up the numbers I got from the net and headed towards the temple.
It was little difficult to find the address as this area is underdeveloped and is not a famous temple. There were no signboards about the temple anywhere and even the people whom I asked were also not aware of the name of the temple.
This temple is dedicated to “Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi” and “Shri Jnana Muneshwara Swamy”.
How to reach:
By own vehicle: From Kathriguppa reach AGS layout and go straight up until you reach Kengeri-Uttarahalli road. From there go towards Kengeri and need to take left just before “Patalamma temple” that is an 80-feet road. This road goes to some Ashram. Near the dead end take left go up 0.5 km that goes to “Turahalli colony”, again need to take right after half kilometer. Evening hours you can hear the devotional songs from the temple. It is a bit difficult to find the address as people around will be North Indians and they are unfamiliar with the locality.
By Bus: Take busses either from Kengeri or Uttarahalli and get down at “Patalamma temple” and go through the rout explained above.
