History of Lord Shiva Temple
The history of this Shiva Temple goes back to the building of the 65-feet-tall Lord Shiva statue in 1994. On February 27, 1995, on the auspicious MahaShivratri day in Bangalore, Karnataka, the temple was inaugurated by Shringeri’s Sri Shankaracharya.
This isn’t a growing temple! One morning, Ravi V. Melwani had a dream of building a temple where Lord Shiva’s huge statue will stand, building trust, hope, and faith for generations to come. He was surprised because he had no money, land, and plan when that inspiration struck him. This dream was all he had. But Ravi V. Melwani and his father Vashi J. Melwani were fully convinced that the dream was indeed God’s word. We were trying to make this vision a reality. They got a piece of ground, arranged for the funds, as if by chance, with God’s grace, and the Temple soon became a reality. Everything is possible with confidence!
