While on a trip to Nandi Hills, tourists must visit Yoga Nandeeshwara Temple that was constructed by the Cholas. This pilgrimage site is one of the oldest shrines in the region and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. There are beautiful designs and carvings on the sculptures and walls. The attractive Kalyana Mantapa is another feature of the Yoga Nandeeshwara Temple.
The complex of this ancient temple is guarded at the entrance by two Dwarapalakas. An inscription of 'Sambhaji' (Chhatrapati Shivaji's son) is another feature and one of the chief attractions of Yoga Nandeeshwara Temple. Devotees offer prayers to deities by enchanting an inscription, known as 'Kodi Maram', which has been engraved on the wall of the temple.
