Begur is a village in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is in the state capital Bangalore. It is off Bangalore-Hosur highway. It is said to have been a prominent place during the rule of the Chola Kingdom. A historical tank and a beautiful old temple(Naganatheshwara temple) dating back almost 1300 years can be seen there along with a broken old fortress which is the home of another temple.

Historical Naganatheshwara temple at Begur.

The temples are between 1 and 2 km apart. The main idol is that of lord Shiva. On the eve of Shivaratri devotees perform pujas and stay awake the whole night. In the month of April there is a car festival visited by many people. This place is yet to get a mark as a tourist destination due to improper transport facilities and roads. Transport is mainly by BMTC buses and autos. Transportation facilities to this village is not a problem as Bangalore's BMTC buses arrives and departures every 5 min to all parts of the city.

There are 5 major roads that connect Begur to rest of Bangalore.

Now the connectivity to this temple is much better than earlier. 2.5 km (1.6 mi) from elevated highway (NH 7) roads also good.

Interesting point, now the temple is under renovation. The proximity of Begur lake gives an amazing look altogether. Begur lake you can find lotus flowers spread across and this can be boosted as a tourist point.

This can be a nice place to visit in case of a plan to visit South Indian Temples.
