Dillinkote Veerabhadreshwara Temple

Veerabhadreshwara Temple is situated at Dillinkote village in Tumkur District of Karnataka. This temple is dedicated to Veerabhadreshwara or the soldier avatar of Lord Shiva. The sanctum sanctorum is home to two main idols, a naturally formed Shivling, the phallic emblem of supreme creative energy, and a statue of Lord Shiva in standing posture wielding a sword and shield.

This highly revered shrine has a distinct Navaranga with four carved pillars, which leads to the garbha griha. The pillars and Ganesh idol carved on the rock face in the Navaranga suggest that this temple belong to the Hoysala era.

Tumkur Railway Station is the nearest major railway station.
