Jul 30, 2005 | Halebidu, Karnataka (India).

The architecture and play of light at this temple was beautiful. My attempts to capture this does little justice to the true beauty of the place.


Halebidu (literally "old city") is located in Hassan District, Karnataka, India. Halebidu (which used to be called Dorasamudra or Dwarasamudra) was the regal capital of the Hoysala Empire in the 12th century. It is home to some of the best examples of Hoysala architecture. Most notable are the ornate Hoysaleswara and Kedareswara temples. The city got the name "Halebidu" because it was ransacked two times during the invasion of Malik Kafur. [Source: Wikipedia]
