Hoysala Temples 15: Kedareshwara Temple, Halebidu

Date: 14th Feb 2016

Visitors: Arun, Shilpi and Harsh

Timing: Unsure. Closed when we went around 9:30 AM

Fee: None

Located around a km from Hoysaleswara temple in Halebidu is the lesser know hoysala temple Kedareswara. The sanctum was closed when we reached and no one else near by to ask for anything. The temple is surrounded by beautiful green fields. We liked the location of this temple a lot. The lawn was very well maintained. We spent some time walking around and clicking pics. Harsh had nice fun running all around. The temple was built on a star shaped platform. The outer wall has extensive relief work. Unfortunate that we could not go inside.

Some pics from the visit.

View from the main gate.

With green surroundings.

The frieze panel at the base.

Relief work on the walls.

Pierced window.

Enjoyed watching trees more than the temple itself.

Frieze and the wall decoration.

Coconut farm nearby. The road ends at the temple. Early bird gets the worm is surely true for most tourist places. Its just peaceful.

Few other sculptures from the temple.

Makara the mythical creature.

Side view of the temple.

I couldn't stop click the pics of trees, grass, small birds and insects near by.

A lovely temple to visit in halebidu along with Hoysaleswara temple.
