“Stunning Architecture”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is one of the best structures of the Hoysala empire. This is about 1000 years old and is well preserved by the Archeological Survey of India.

This is a 'MUST visit' place for everyone.

The temple is not just a temple, but almost like a museum of brilliant sculpture and art.

A note of caution is that there is no place to stay or have a good meal around this place, its recommended that you get your own food or drive to a nearby city.

Shows how great our country and culture is. How great our rulers were in those days. You need at least one week to have a satisfactory visit to this temple
