Koti-Lingeshwara temple: World's tallest Shiva Linga with 86 lacs Lingas!
Amazingly scenic and beautiful with 86 lacs (yes, you read it right!) and the World's tallest (57 ft. I guess) Shiva Linga - Koti Lingeshwara is located around 100 km. of Bangalore, in Kolar district. I came to know of it from Wikipedia and thought of visiting it today with my better half and mother-in-law.
The trip was a bearable one - overcoming all language barriers and "straighto", "Lefto" and "Righto"s. Finally after 3 hours and 110 km. we could reach Kotilingeshwara, just off SH 95. And it is worth the effort indeed. Temple timings are 6 AM-12-30 and then 3PM to 8 PM, open all days. Entry fees is nominal (Rs. 5) but if you are interested in taking snaps you have to shell out Rs. 100 extra. But, don't worry - it will be totally paisa wasool!
