Malleswara Kannada: ಮಲ್ಲೇಶ್ವರ is a north-western district of Bengaluru city. It developed as a suburb during the great plague of 1898, which caused many people to move out from the city center. It derives its name from the Kaadu Malleshwara temple.

The Kaadu/ Kadu Malleshwara Temple (ಕಾಡು ಮಲ್ಲೇಶ್ವರ) is a temple dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva located in the Malleshwara locality of Bengaluru, India. The temple was built in the 17th century A.D. by Venkoji, the brother of the Maratha King Shivaji in Dravidian style of architecture. Shiva is worshipped as Mallikarjun. The main annual festival is Shivaratri. The locality of Malleshwara is named after this temple. One part of the temple, Nandishwara Teertha Temple (Basava Theertha), is in front of the temple. It is said to be the main source or birthplace of the Vrishabhavathi River.

Beside this temple you can visit the other 2 famous temples : Sri Gangamma Devi Temple and Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple.
