"An architectural masterpiece"

An epitome of the Hoysala architecture, Somnathpura temple is an ancient mandir dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The intricately carved idol sculptures and the elegantly engraved temple-walls make this monument an architectural masterpiece. The surrounding garden is well-maintained and adds to the grandeur of this historical structure. The temple is a must-visit for esthetes.

Chennakesava Temple, Somanathapura

The Chennakesava Temple located at Somanathapura is one of the finest examples of Hoysala architecture. The temple was built by Soma, a Dandanayaka in 1268 C.E. under Hoysala king Narasimha III, when the Hoysala Empire was the major power in South India.
