It's an ancient Shaiva Temple built during 9th century. The deity is famously known by names, Nanjundeshwara or Srikanteshwara. The temple is built on the banks of river kapila. There would be very long queue for darshan of lord Shiva on Sundays and Mondays.

This is one of the most famous Shiva Temples in South India. It is situated in Nanjangud, which is about 22 km from Mysuru. This temple is quite old and of historical importance. It is quite big too.

The temple is at a distance of 25 km from Mysore. We reached here in evening. Luckily there was no Que. So we have darshan with ease. This is an ancient and well-known temple of Lord Shiva. Do visit when you are at Mysore.
