Gavi Gangadhareshvara Temple
The Gavi Gangadhareshvara temple was constructed in the 16th century by Kemoe Gowda. The temple is located inside a rock cave in Gavipuram and is one of the Banglore's oldest temples. The main attractions of the temple are the granite pillars that supports colossal discs symbolizing the sun and the moon. The special feature of the temple is a unique phenomenon of the evening sun's rays passing between Nandhi's horns and falling directly on the linga inside the cave.
