Known for its Hoysala architecture style, also called poor sibling of Belur because it couldn't fully finish and war broke out. The carvings are mind blowing, the intricate work and ingenuity will leave you in trance. Do yourself a favor & hire one of the guide as it makes all the difference.
Belur is grand and has its charm but Halebidu is no less either. As our guide said, admire Halebidu from outside and Belur from inside. So true.
Will definitely visit again.
