Kodi punyam tharum Kotilingam and Bakthiyai kodukum Bangaru Tirupati.

Near Kolar Gold mine at Kammasandra village  lies a beautiful temple  Kotilingam dedicated to Lord Shiva. The main deity is the gigantic Kotilingeswara which is 108 feet tall. Facing the Shiva lies a 35 metre Nandi. Kotilingam means crores of Lingas. The temple is rich with around  90 lakhs of Lingas installed by devotees. Each lingam is of different shapes and size.

Devotees contribute their offering by installing the lingas with their  name engrossed. The installation  charge varies according to size. The other temples within the premises are Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, Lord Maheshwara, Goddess Annapoorneshwari, Lord Panduranga Swamy, Lord Panchamukha Ganapathy, Lord Rama Lakshmana Sita, Lord Venkataramani, Lord Anjaneya, Goddess Kannika Parameshwari and Goddess Karumaari Amman Temple. The uniqueness is that one can perform abhisekam to Shivlingam that is located in Kannika Parameshwari Temple. We feel this is the only temple in South where the devotees can perform abhisekam to Shivalingam. What a blessed feeling we had.
Bangaru Tirupati:
This temple is situated at bout 9 km from Kotilingam on Guttalahalli  dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Always  advisable to be careful as more monkeys are waiting to grab things from peoples hand. The temple lies on the hillock. One has to climb the step to reach the temple. The main deity is Ekanta Srinivasa who is gracing devotees through the small window.

Next had the darshan of sweet scent of Mercy  Padmavati Thayar. Spent some time in the temple and proceeded back to home. On the way back we stopped over at Woody's Restaurant and had food. When we are about to leave we saw the veteran Tamil actress Anjali Devi. Spoke to her for a few minutes. She is a down to earth lady.
