On a long weekend, we thought of taking a trip in our thunderbird and hence decided to head to this beautiful village called somanathpura.
Somanathapura, also spelled Somanathpur, Somnathpur, or Somanathpura, is a town and Grama Panchayat in Tirumakudalu Narasipura,tin the state of Karnataka.
This small village is 133kms from Bengaluru. This place is known for hoysala architecture.
The ornate temple is called Chennakesava Temple. The temple is enclosed in a courtyard with a pillared corridor of small shrines (damaged). The main temple in the center is on a high star-shaped platform with three symmetrical sanctums (garbha-griha), set in a square matrix (89' x 89') oriented along the east-west and north-south axes.3
This beautiful temple has beautiful architecture that has been preserved since centuries though some places it's damaged.
But the temple and it's architecture is marvelous and worth the drive.
Please see the photos below which describes the beauty of this place
