Makara Sankranthi(Jan 13th-15th) this ancient temple witnesses a unique phenomenon in the evening. It is so well sculpted that sun's rays would pass through the horns of the stone bull outside the temple and light up the deity Shiva Linga inside the cave for one hour, every year on year. The other attraction are the two giant disk of the sun and moon, while the other two pillars have a trident (trishul) and a two-headed drum (damru), representing the two significant possessions of Lord Shiva.

The history of the temple dates back to the 9th century. It is believed that the temple was cut out of a rock in the 9th century. Later in the 16th century, Kempegowda I, the founder of Bangalore, revamped and extended the temple.Earlier drawings by Thomas and William Daniell shows that the temple had lesser structures and Sun illuminated the shire in summer and winter solstice.Apart from the wonderful phenomenon, the temple also stands as a glaring example of the marvelous Indian rock-cut architecture and an architectural sun clock. And it is certainly a matter of pride to acknowledge this ancient marvel that is amidst us in our Bengaluru.
