This place is only of historic and architectural importance.
To get there, when coming from Shimoga side, take a right in Sagar (Karnataka toursim yellow sign board markings available) - from this point, it would be around 9 kms, and do not rely on public transport.
there are a few locals (not officially guides) who will explain the significance of the temple, as well as point out intricate carvings and their interpretations - a fee of 50/- will be very happily accepted by them. Left by yourself, you may not be able to identify these unless you have a keen eye and a lot of time.
Dont miss the following :
Vaastu devaru carving,
the flag pole (dhwaja stambha) carvings with nandi on top of the pillar,
wooden carvings with different kinds of flowers on ceiling - with each design being unique
wooden musical gods carving as border for ceiling
navagraha carving on ceiling
the naga (snake) carvings
smallest ganesha carving on one of the pillars
Ganda berunda (official emblem of Karnataka - KSRTC etc) carving on ceiling
Dragon figurines etc
Definitely worth the visit
