Weekend Getaway: 23. Hosur: Chandrachoodeshwarar Temple

Date: 12th April 2015

Visitor: Arun

Route: Bangalore - Hosur

Distance: 40 Kms

Road condition: Excellent.
Here comes the summer vacations, Shilpi and Harsh went to our hometown to spend couple of weeks.

I was all alone and was getting bored within few hours after they left.

The weather was also good so decided to go out for a small drive.

The temple is located on top of a small hill in hosur town.

One can either park the vehicle down and walk up or drive all the way to the top.

I drove up and it was a nice big open parking. Nice breeze up there and the view from the top was beautiful.
View of a pond. Hosur looks so colorful from the top. All the houses were painted in different colors.
Few pigeons around the temple. I reached there around 3:30 and the temple would only open at 4:30. The sky was clear and i was walking around the temple taking some pics.

Suddenly within few minutes the black clouds started building up and it turned bit dark.

The wind grew stronger and the clouds got darker.
At 4:30 the temple opened and i went inside and there was a crowd of 20-30 people.

Lord Shiva was decorated nicely and had a good darshan.

The rock pillars are one of the interesting things to see inside.
View of Gopuram.
Getting more and more dark.

Just when i came out and started walking towards the car it started pouring.

Held the camera under my shirt and ran towards the car. Just in time to save the camera.

From then on it was just awesome. It rained very heavily and i had to drive very slow.

Though the visibility was very low it was fun to drive.
Karnataka - Tamil nadu border.

Another place of interest near by is Rajaji memorial in Thorapalli. Could not go there because if rain. Next time.
