This is a must visit temple in Mysore.It is somewhat far from the city so may need to have GPS navigation but easy to locate. The temple is known for its architecture. One should hire a guide so that they can give you each & every detail of architecture of the place. Guide here will charge you a nominal fee (150--200 rs). I personally feel that it is an admirable architecture of Indian olden era.

It's really worth. What a beautiful architecture! Before visiting, we thought that that it is a normal temple with regular poojas. But it is an archaeological structure with lot of work. Some renovation is going on at the site. Of course the temple has 3 idols of Krishna in 3 different forms.

You have to go around the structure & enjoy all the work. Guides are also available at site for Rs.250/-. You can take the service for more information.

Don't miss it 7 enjoy this awesome architecture beauty of Indian culture.

The temple is in renovation.. better to watch it now than later as after that it will be heavily crowded and may not be able to take snaps etc...
right now one can take snaps at will as there are no poojas etc..

Lot of minute details ...in the temple..... lot of stories too..
A Must watch ....
architectural brilliance ....

This is a nice old temple complex with great detail on the columns. It is currently under rennovation but still worth a visit.

I rate this as one of the best of the architectures you can ever find. I personally feel that it is better than Belur and Halebedu.
