Binnamangala is about 30 km from Bengaluru, few km before Nelamangala bus stand. A lovely Mukthi Natheshwara temple dedicated to Lord Shiva built by the King Kulothunga Cholan. This temple has been renovated by ASI.
On the day of Pradosham we went to Muktha Natheshwara Temple. Though we planned our visit to this temple the previous day, we made it only on Sunday. The priest in Basavanahalli temple repeatedly told us to visit this temple. God had something special for us :) .
We went inside the temple, there were about 3 devotees and the priest was chanting Vedas. The priest with his smiling face and waved his hand, asked us to sit inside. He started performing pooja and Abhisekam. We were sitting near the entrance to sanctum sanctorum. Tears flowed in our eyes as we could feel some divine vibration.
According to Kannadigas this day was also ending of Uttarayana and the following day was the opening of Dakshinayana.
The priest allowed as to take snaps of the deities during pooja. Around the finishing time around 25 people gathered and had the holy darshan.
Later prasad was distributed. Had a pious feeling and started to Bengaluru.
