For the past few days, a lot of people having been visiting my web-site looking for ”Lakshmi Hayagriva temple in Bangalore” and landing up here on this post : http://ancientindians.wordpress.com/2010/06/20/sri-lakshmi-hayagriva-temples-and-worship/
The Bangalore Lakshmi Hayagriva temple is near the majestic bus station (K.B.S.), run by Parkala mutt. (Sri Sri Brahmathantra Swathantra Parakala Swamy Mutt, Tank Bund Road, Opp Bangalore Bus Stand, Bangalore - 560 009 Contact : (off) 080 – 2287 1557, firstname.lastname@example.org
Srimad Parakala Mutt Hayagriva Temple is located in Majestic area close to Sangam Cinema Theatre.
I went and located it yesterday. Stand right in front of Sangam Theatre. Turn left and walk straight past a lot of travel agencies till you come to the Janata Travel Agency. The temple is right next to it.
I am told that it was established 60 years ago by the guruji Sri A. Ranganathaswamy and Sri S. Radhakrishnan, our former president was some how involved either present or participated. I was a little nervous to ask for photography permission. (being a part advaitin who doesn’t know all proper dvaitin rules).
I was also luckily mis-directed to a Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple near the police station, but it wasn’t yet open when I went. I saw only Hanuman! So a visit is on the cards.
Finally, I had a darsan, and got teertha, tualsi leaves and prasadam. Yay!
I got a picture of a Dr. Rajkumar (Kannada Movie Star and Icon) temple, near the police station.. so you have something to look at! I loved his early work the best!
