The Chennakeshava temple in Turuvekere stands small in middle of the residences. It had started drizzling while we reached the temple. We were waiting for the rain to slow down so we can go to the temple. Two elderly person came out of their house and informed that the temple is closed. There was a death in the house left of the temple and the priest has gone somewhere. However main entrance is open and we could see the exteriors. The rain slowed down a bit and we went to the temple.

The ceiling has simple floral design.

The front porch is supported by two pillars.

The outer walls had a simple design. The walls were mostly plain.

The base of the temple with plain moldings.

Vimana with most part ruined.

Would have been happy if we could have seen the interiors and had darshan of Lord Vishnu.
