Panchamukha Ganesha

  temple in Anchepalya on Mysore Road, is about 30 km from Electronic City via NICE Ring Road. You can hardly miss the dazzling Panchamukha on the left side of Mysore Road ( from Bengaluru).

The temple was built by Sri Chakra Committee in 2007. Vishwakarma Ashram was also built adjascent to the temple. The students of this Ashram also are involved in the development & activities of the temple.

What makes this temple unique is the spectacular 30 ft high Gopuram (temple tower) with 4 Ganeshas seated in 4 directions and the 5th Ganesha head perched atop the 4 Ganeshas, facing the front. The Panchamukhi Ganesha is painted in golden colour. The deity inside is also a 6 ft high Panchamukhi (5 faced) Ganesha idol carved in black stone. The ceiling around the sanctum is colourful with Ganesha paintings all around. Behind the sanctum are a few Ganesha paintings embossed in sheet metal. The temple has a doorway and a bell in each of the 4 directions. Interiors of the temple are built with granite and marble.

The marble interiors and the red-tiled courtyard around the temple are mantained very clean. An artificial water pond running around the temple adds to the beauty.

Dodda Aaladamara in Ramohalli and Janapada Lokha are other tourist attractions not far from this temple.
