Temple of Lord Muruga in Bangalore

Came across this temple of Lord Muruga in the Web.   A new temple - part of it is still under construction as of this date.  Impressive and modern construction.  There is very little information about it in the Web and even it's address isn't clear.   All that was available when I first saw it was that it was in BEML layout.   There are at least two BEML layouts in Bangalore that I know about: Brookfield, and Rajarajeswari Nagar.

This Shanmukha Temple is in BEML Layout, Rajarajeswari Nagar, Bangalore.   Here is the maps link.

Lord Muruga is called by a plethora of different names, popular of them being Shanmugha, Subramanya, and Karthikeya.

Update (Nov 22, 2012):  Visited this temple - it's built on a hilltop and has a massive Gopuram representing the six faces of Lord Karthikeya, facing six different directions.  First of it's kind to my knowledge.  The Gopuram is visible even about 2-3 kms from the temple as you approach the temple.
