Not an active temple, I would call. But, still people warship Shiva Linga here. Not very easy to find this location as it’s at the end of narrow paths. Not much to see. At the same time, remained sculptures look interesting.

One of the two lingams...More

It is a 900 years old temple with well designed architecture from the Badami-Chalukyan era. It is situated in a residential area opposite to unkal lake.. nothing much for site seeing.. because the monument is in half ruins with Lord Shiva inside the sanctum..
