Temples in Hoodi, Bangalore

Hoodi is one of the developing villages in the Bangalore suburbs. Close to ITPL, Whitefield, Marthahalli and Mahadevpura, no wonder Bangalore is becoming a real estate centric place. Loads and loads of residential and commercial projects are propping up like mushrooms. For all Hoodi village residents, let me list the temples in Hoodi , between Hoodi Circle and the Hoodi railway cross.
