Book Bangalore Hotels Book Bangalore Holiday Packages

Ghati Subramanya is an ancient Hindu temple, built in Dravidian tradition, similar to many other temples around Bangalore and Mysore. It is located on the outskirts of Bangalore, about 60 kilometres from the city near Tubagere.

It is a popular pilgrimage centre with the presiding deities of both Lord Subramanya as well as Lord Lakshmi Narasimha. It is also an important centre in South India for snake worship.

The idol of Lord Subramanya faces eastwards and the idol of Lord Narasimha faces westwards. A huge mirror was placed strategically at the back in the sanctum sanctorum so that devotees can see both deities at the same time. The temple is especially popular with couples who seek blessings to have a child. One of the biggest festivals celebrated here is the Pushya Suddha Shasti. This is believed to be the birthday of Lord Subramanya. The other major festival observed in the temple is Narasimha Jayanthi. Skanda Shasti or the wedding anniversary of the lord is also celebrated in the temple.

There are plenty of other attractions within 20 to 30 kilometres of the temple, making this a good option for a weekend getaway. The nearest railway station to the temple is Makali Durga on the Bangalore – Guntakal line.
