This place is free of communal violence and is known for its communal harmony, in fact people from muslim community too are devotees. There are two Dargas located at close proximity to this temple. For the annual sandalwood festival at Abbajan and Ammajan Dargas the water used to make the sandalwood paste comes from this temple. This has been the practice for many decades. Also, muktheeshwara promptly shows up in some muslim devotees dream, and summons to visit the temple. And Muslim devotees promptly show up at the temple, and seek lords blessings by offering prayers to Mukteeshwara.
In order to make your wish come true, devotees are asked to tie 1 Re or 11 Rs (coins) in a piece of red cloth and later tied to stala virkusham or temple tree ( temple trees varies from temple to temple). The temple tree at mukteeshwara is ''hatthi'' mara (sorry, I do not know the english name for this tree). Before tying it to the tree, one has to hold it in the hand and pray to the god with complete faith and then tie it to the tree. There are many people whose wishes and prayers have been answered.
This temple is not too far from Bangalore. And also, if you're not able to visit Kashi for what ever reason, you may get a glimpse of ganges here at Mukteeshwara temple. Why wait, visit this temple whenever you can and seek the blesings of lord shiva.
