Panchamukhi Ganesha temple , Mysore road - Bangalore

In this post , we share our visit experience to Sri Panchamukhi Ganesha temple near Mysore road ,  one of the tourist attraction nowadays near NICE road junction about 20 kms from Bengaluru city center.

Highlights of this spot

  • The Gopuram of this temple houses 30 ft panchamuki ganesha painted in golden color
  • Inside the temple sanctum , about 6ft idol of panchamukhi ganesha is consecrated
  • Beside to temple is Vishwakarma community guru Ashrama
  • Calm place - good for prayer & meditation

This was one of the spots which our team always thought to explore , though they had noticed this temple many times while travelling on mysore road. This temple is just about 100 mts from NICE road junction. The tall ganesha gopuram attracts visitors.

Inside the temple were small marble & concrete water ponds where fishes were fed. Surrounding the temple is also a concrete water pond which is unique of its kind. Inside the temple straight we noticed about 5-6 ft black stone ganesha idol , with ganesha face in each direction and one on top which exactly resembled the gopuram structure. There was no priest when we visited and pooja seemed to have already conducted. Spot is very calm - good for offering silent prayers & meditation.

There is a ashram adjacent to this temple - "Sathyashraya Kuteera" - where one may get darshan of Vishwakarma community Guruji if available. Some of the community religious & books collections are displayed here.

 A nice spot to visit with family , friends and spend some time over a weekend. We are not sure of the temple timings - morning 8 AM to 10 AM is preferred. Do visit and share your experience.
