Yesterday we had a fatiguing yet a fascinating trek to Bandaje falls. We had good rest at night and all rejuvenated for today. Today's planned activities were rather easy on the body. We were to visit the historical towns of Belur and Halebeedu today, a chance to have a glimpse into the world of Hoysala architecture.
The Hoysala empire had a lasting impression on the governing of South India. They prioritized art, architecture and its illustrious impact can be seen in many places such as the Belur and Halebidu temple complexes. The intricate carvings on their complexes signifies their dedication to skilled craftsmanship. Grand is an understatement to their stellar efforts to popularize art and architecture.
