Kolaramma temple, Kolar, Bangalore, Karnataka

History
**
The temple is built in Dravida Vimana Style and dates back to the Ganga period. The temple has several Chola renovations and additions were made by them in the 11th century, followed by Vijayanagara rule in the 15th century. The Cholas made several inscriptions in the temple, the earliest inscription belongs to the period of Rajendra Chola–I from 1012-1045 A.D.

Architecture
****
The temple is built in typical South Indian architectural style using granite stones and is around 800 years old. The temple is L-shaped housing two shrines, one for Durga who is known as Kolaramma and another for Saptamatras. The main temple faces the east while the larger shrine faces the north. But both of them share a common vestibule. Though the temple resembles a mantapa, there are nearly 30 inscriptions in both Tamil and Kannada found in the temple complex.

Religious Significance
***************
The presiding deity is Kolaramma, a name given to the eight armed Goddess Durga. The deity is Mahishasuramardini; but people here call her by the name of Kolaramma. Devotees throng the place for special pooja on Tuesdays and Fridays. The idol of the goddess is placed on the side of the sanctum sanctorum since the goddess is considered very fearsome and the devotees are protected from her direct gaze by worshipping her looking at a mirror placed opposite her idol.
