Lepakshi, in the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh, is easily accessible from Bangalore. The beautiful Veerabhadraswamy Temple and India’s largest monolithic granite Nandi (a bearlike creature) make for a great day-trip option.

Yes. You can easily get buses to B'lore from Hindupur. Once you are in B'lore there are buses to Mysore every hour. Both the govt. buses as well as private. If you plan in advance you have option to take the train too.
