Bengaluru city in Karnataka state of India has got plenty to offer to all heritage enthusiasts. On Sunday 2nd September, 2018 I visited a 1200 year old Hindu temple in the midst of the city popularly known as Halasuru Someshwara temple.img_20180902_0910132-effects

When I stepped into the temple premises I was wonder struck with its  rich history and carvings of divinities.
