Kalkunte Agrahara Sri Ranganatha Perumal Temple

Bangalore being converted to concrete jungle, people became self concentrated, malls and multiplexes , It Parks around the city, every nook and corner wine shops and pubs  are swallowing the villages  around the city.

Beside all these things the another side of beauty of Bangalore if you want to see travel 30 + kms outskrits. Fresh air, Few lakes, and beautiful calm place only one relaxing and to surrender the lords feat many temples (which are having 100 years of history) around.

I am taking to one of such place A small modren para Village border to Bangalore city. Welcome to KALKUNTE AGRAHARA -Sri Ranganatha Swami Perumal Temple an 300 Year old beautiful temple. The Sri Vaishnava sect here are famous as Kalkunte Iyengars.

This temple has a Rajagopuram, Prakaram, behind there is a small stage for religious  discourse or other  functions. In the entrance either side of the wall Dashavatharam the 10 incarnations of lord Vishnu is carved beautifully.

Construction is on for a choultry. With blessing of god many children of this village had acquired good knowledge  and settled in overseas. Still their root is strong in native village. The developed village is a modern example. It is having a School, Hospital, and being on the main connecting road transport is easily accessible.

Archakar Sri. Suresh Bhattar explained the history  of the temple and the on going temple development works. In the month of Palguna annual festival of Sri Ranganathar happens here. Thousands of devotees will witness the grand festival during that time.

How to reach Kalkunte Agrahara :

Route 1: Drive straight road crossing K R puram towards Whitefiled. At the end of that road (cross Hoodi, ITPL) ‘T’ junction  ie., Hoskote road . Dont take any deviations here. Continue the driving straight you are on the Chikka Thirupati Road.  after 5 to 6 kms you will see the board to take deviation to Chikka Tiruapathi and Kalkunte Agrahara.  Take right and drive further 6 kms will reach this village.

Route 2 : On the Sarjapura Road  outer ring road cross Agara, ibbalur junction, WIPRO office and reach Sarjapura and take left turn towards Chikka Tirupathi cross CT and drive straight on the Hoskote Road will reach Kalkunte.
