Rajarajeshwari Plagueamma Temple

Rajarajeshwari Plagueamma Temple on the Mysore Road is the only temple dedicated to the epidemic of plague. The temple enshrines Goddess Rajarajeshwari and two holy stones. Formerly, there were just two stones at the site. When the dreaded epidemic struck the city about a century ago, the city folk were said to have offered their prayers to these stones. The faith in these stone was justified and the disease was completely wiped out. From that time onwards, people started worshiping these stones. A temple was built around these stones and the idol of Rajarajeswari was installed next to the stones. Navratri, varshikothsava, and the birthday of Goddess Rajarajeshwari are the main festivals celebrated.

Bangalore is well connected by road, rail and air to all major cities. The City Station is the most convenient train station for visitors to the temple.
