The architecture of this temple is really stunning and breathtaking. Preserved for archaeological and tourism reasons, entry is allowed to all irrespective of religion and nationality. Better visit this temple with a verified guide, so as to understand the history behind the sculptures.

Visit this temple with a good guide. There is so much to see and understand. We did not have sufficient time (about an hour). Will come back for another visit.

We visited Halebidu on our way to Bangalore from chikmanglur. We had the good sense to hire a local guide who gave us insights into the temple history and architecture. Beautiful spell binding carvings! Must visit for those who are interested in architecture and history.
