Chandra Choodeswarar Temple Hosur is a very old and important temple of the region.
We have not been able to visit any place during last one month due to various reasons. We just wanted to go some where on this long weekend, but some how could not make a plan.
Only one day trip was possible and hence were looking for an option.
While going towards Hosur, we have seen a temple on the hill top many a time and hence always wanted to visit that.
We decided to take a trip to Hosur this time. Anyway its not very far from Bengaluru.
Actually just 30 mins from electronics city.
In a hurry, watch this video:
History of Chandra Choodeswarar Temple Hosur
There is a a bit of history around this beautiful temple. Built by Thirupuvanamalla Barvatharaja Anthiyazhvar who belonged to Hoysala Dynasty, this temple is around 700 years old.
The temple is dedicated to lord Shiva who is called Shri Choodeswarar and Goddess Parvati, also called as Goddess Maragadambal.
If you are travelling from Bangalore to Hosur you will find this temple on the right hand side on a hill top.
The main temple is quite big and impressive. There is a small water body near the temple (kalyani).
