Our team took the NICE road and took the diversion at Magadi Road for about 5 kms to reach this spot. There was ample parking space at the location . Being a weekend Sunday , there was good crowd. The temple complex is spread over 2 to 3 acres. We first took darshan of the unqiue Pusthaka Brindavan. Pusthaka in kannada means Book . The Brindavan consecrated here is filled with books in which about 108 crore written are recitations of Sri Raghavendraya Namaha. Devotees offer Ghee lamp pooja at this spot.

Next to the Pusthaka brindavan sanctum is the Saligrama Brindavan temple hall . This spot was very calm and silence is maintained all around . Those who may have visited Mantralaya may get a glimpse of similar architecture. Administration staff here shared info this is one of its kind unique in India which uses Saligrama stone. Besides this sanctum is another small sanctum where a structure is formed on the rocks and Devi is worshiped in the form of Valli and Kalpavalli. There is a Pooja Bhandar store where idols , photo frames , Prasad , toys , food items of this locality is available for shopping. Free lunch is offered for devotees who may also contribute in form of donations. The temple association is engaged in this locality offering free books to children , arranging health camps etc.
