Thimmaraaya Swamy Temple , Anekal - near Bengaluru

Our team recently visited one of the ancient temples near Bengaluru , Sri Thimmaraaya Swamy temple which is at Anekal around 35 to 40 kms from city center and is one of the tourist spots in Anekal.

Anekal is a big town and taluk of Bangalore Urban district which is towards south and near Tamil nadu border.  Reach-ability is very good , with many government and private buses from city center.

Sri Thimmaraya Swamy temple is believed to be one of the ancient temples of Karnataka believed as the incarnation of Tirupati Balaji which dates to thousand years ago. Lord Sri Venkateshwara is worshiped here. It is believed, the main idol stone had developed by itself (Udbhava) which aids to its importance. This temple is near the KSRTC depot of Anekal and is around 2 kms from there.  Our team visited the temple by 12:00 PM and took the Darshan.

Nearby devotees keep flowing in , temple remains always calm. One may get a very good darshan of the Idol. Next to this is Sri Hanuman temple of the village. Temple has a small pond (Kalyani) and a tulasi katte.
Temple is open between 07:00 to 12:30 PM and between 05:00 to 07:00 PM everyday. During the popular karaga festival in Anekal , the idol of this temple is placed on a Ratha (Chariot) and processions are held around the village. The temple's Gopuram attracts the visitors with its unique style where many pigeons reside.

Overall its a very calm nice place surrounded by greenery to visit with your family on a weekend morning / evening. The roads are very good , most of them being National Highways. There's ample space for parking.  You may also plan this as a picnic spot along when visiting Bannerghatta National Park which is around 15 kms from this spot.
