About the India-EMBO Symposium

This symposium will highlight the latest scientific and technical advances in Ca2+ signaling, including its role in physiology and disease. The meeting will therefore focus on recent developments in Ca2+ signaling and their impact on health and disease. Sessions will include cellular Ca2+ homeostasis, organelle Ca2+ dynamics as well as Ca2+ micro domains and their role in physiology and disease. We particularly aim to spur stimulating discussions among scientists as well as to enable interactions between younger and more senior investigators. The overarching goal is to identify and propel new directions for research in the field of Ca2+ signaling in Indiaandother countries. We hope through this meeting to encourage international collaborations in this rapidly evolving and exciting field. Most importantly, this conference will provide an invaluable opportunity for Indian students, post-docs and young faculty members to interact with and gain knowledge from experts around the globe.

About the Area

Bhoga Nandishwara Temple – half day trip

Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple is a Hindu temple located in Nandi village, at the base of Nandi Hills in the Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka state, India. It is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva

Day Trips from Bangalore to Nandi Temple

The original temple in the complex, identified as one of the oldest temples of Karnataka, dates back to the early 9th century. The earliest inscriptions referring to the construction of the temple for Shiva, according to the Archaeological Survey of India, are from Nolamba dynasty ruler Nolambadiraja and the Rashtrakuta emperor Govinda III dated c.806, and copper plates of the Bana rulers Jayateja and Dattiya of about c.810. The temple was later under the patronage of successive notable South Indian dynasties: the Ganga Dynasty, the Chola dynasty, the Hoysala Empire and the Vijayanagara Empire. In the post medieval era, the local chiefs of Chikaballapura and the rulers of the Mysore Kingdom (Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan) controlled the region before it eventually came under British rule after the death of Tipu Sultan in c.1799. The architectural style is Dravidian. The temple is located at a distance of 60 km from Bangalore. The temple is protected as a monument of national importance by the Archaeological Survey of India.

Day Trips from Nandi Temple to Lepakshi

Lepakshi is a small town famous for Virabhadra temple built in 15th century by Vijayanagara kings. It is a sprawling temple and known for the largest monolith of Nandi and also the Nagalinga. The sculptures in the temple and paintings on the ceilings add to the beauty of this lovely temple. Vidurashwatha as the name suggest is the place which is known for the “Ashwatha” (peepul) tree planted by Vidura of Mahabharata. The fascinating array of Nagas welcome you in this temple!
