koravangala temple, Hassan, Karnataka

Presenting one more post of Hoysala architecture, the most beautiful temples of Karnataka, koravangala Bhucheshwar temple is in Hassan district, it's a 12 km distance from the district head quarters. it was built by Hoysala King Veera Ballala 2nd, this temple was built in 1173 A.D, i am visiting these type of temples and collecting snaps would create some level of interest for the usual visitors of Belur and Halebidu. Many of the historical monuments are still being ignored, best example is Sri Govindeshwara temple that is in ruined state which is near to the premises of koravangala Bhuchechwara temple, If you could see the last images where those temples are completely ignored and is really richer in architecture. This temple is protected as a monument of national importance by the Archaeological Survey of India, near by ruined Sri Govindeshwara temple also comes under the same government entity but difficult to understand the ignorance.

How to reach Koravangala Bhucheshwara Temple
