I have visited Lepakshi few years back, but did it again last month from Bangalore. This time i did it as a guided motorcycle tour. The 125 Km took 2 hours from Bangalore. The roads are fantastic after the Bangalore Airport and was exhilarating riding the Enfield Bullets. We had a tour guide who was leading the ride and hence the route was not a challenge.

At Lepkashi the giant Nandi was awesome. It is anyway supposed to be India's largest. The granite structure looks incredible.

At the Veerabhadra temple the pillars has intricate carvings. The wedding hall is fantastic where the guide told us that as per legend Lord Shiva and Parvati got married!

The paintings were the other aspect of Lepakshi that i enjoyed. Displayed on the walls on an orange back ground, they looked very rich despite the passage of time.

For anyone keen on taking the guided tour visit http://www.5sensestours.com/tour/lep...tecture-trail/

Overal, Lepakshi is like a mini Hampi. One can do this as a day trip from Bangalore and get an idea of what life was in the Vijayanagar Empire in the 16th century.
