Hoysala Temple 17: Nageshvara-Chennakeshava Temple, Mosale

Date: 14th Feb 2016

Visitors: Arun, Shilpi and Harsh

The last temple that we visited during our hassan trip. The twin temples is located in the Mosale village south of Hassan. The previous day we went to another mosale north of hassan. We ended up driving through a narrow mud road and luckily without any incidents. This twin temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. Both temple has identical looks. The temple walls and the towers are well decorated with carvings of the hindu gods. The base was a plain without any carvings. We had visited too many temples in the two days and almost all of them looks same. As a result i did not click much pictures here.

Few pics from the visit.

The front view of the twin temple.

Rear view of the temple. I did not see the thorns in the lawn and stepped on few. So beware.

The relief work on the walls.

Kalasa on top of vimana and the hoysala emblem.

Lord Narasimha inside the temple.

The plain frieze panels.

That brings to the end of our two day trip to hoysala temples around hassan.
