It all began when RVM, the founder of the temple, had a vision during one of his morning ‘thought time’; a vision to build a temple where a huge statue of Lord Shiva would stand, building Faith, Hope and Belief for generations to come. He was surprised, because when this inspiration struck him, he had no money, no land, and no plan. All he had was this dream. But RVM was fully convinced that this dream was in fact a message from God. Thus he started trying his best to make this dream come true. With God by his side, he soon found an apt property in Bangalore, arranged funds for the project and found an architect who would bring his dream into a reality.
