The Nandheeshwara temple ( opposite to the Gangamma temple on the 15th cross Malleshwaram) is a Mystery temple. The discovery of the temple is an interesting story narrated by my local colleague Anil.The temple lay beneath the muddy land and used to be the play ground of local kids. In 1997, a local politician sold the land to a builder who was to develop a commercial building. When the land was cleared and digging started, a courtyard with stone pillars showed up. The local residents took up a fierce protest and reclaimed the land. Further excavation by the ASI revealed a temple intact with a central pond. The highlight was the Nandhi ( cow ) made of black granite with water flowing out of its mouth and falling down on a shivalingam below and flowing to the pond. The mechanism of water falling from the Nandi's mouth remains a mystery. Another unique fact is that this temple faces the south which is a rarity. There is no conclusive data on the origin or timeline of this temple.

Mallashwaram in Bangalore derives its name from the 'kadu Malai Eshwaran Temple' (Kadu meaning Forest and Malai meaning Hill). As the name suggests, it would have been originally a small forest temple dedicated to Shiva that would have been later expanded and built over by later rulers.The style is Dravidian Architecture. The other beautiful temples along the Kadu Malleshwaram temple are the Sri Gangamma devi temple and Lakshmi Narashima swamy temple.
