Sugriva Temples In India – Bengaluru

In the Ramayana epic, Vanara King Sugriva, Hanuman and his soldiers helped Sri Ram in tracing Mata Sita and also played a huge part in defeating Ravana and his army. There are some rare temples in India dedicated to Sugriva.

One such famous temple is the Sugreeva Venkateshwara Temple on Balepet Main Road in Bengaluru. Here a six feet tall murti of Sugriva is worshipped. The murti stands with folded hands.

 Some people might mistake the murti for Hanuman. But on a closer look one can two teeth sticking out of the mouth of the murti. Sugriva, unlike Hanuman, had protruding teeth.

The main murti worshipped in the temple is that of Balaji or Venkateshwara.

The temple is open daily from 6:00 AM to 11:30 AM in the morning and in the evening the temple is open from 3:00 PM to 8:30 PM
