Hoysaleswara Temple - Halebidu
Hoysaleswara Temple is the main attraction and a 900-year-old monument in Halebidu or Dwarasamudra, the capital of the Hoysalas. This is one of the finest Hoysala temples. Every visit to this place brings peace and calm to me always. Each time I have visited Chikmagalur, a stop at Halebidu while coming back to Bangalore has become a kind of ritual for me. The Hoysaleswara temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva too is filled with intricate carvings and engraved sculptures. The shrine is built on an elevated star-shaped platform and displays beautiful scrollwork in stone.
Based in Bangalore,
I wander about on my motorcycle, and welcome bribes in the form of good food.
