"A large sculpture of Ganapati is placed on the ground in front of the porch"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 10, 2015
Kurudumale is worth visiting for the artistic Someshwara Temple, which dates from the Chola occupation of this part of Karnataka in the 11th-12th century. The interesting fact of Someshwara Temple is that it is built of a rock without any foundation, a feat very difficult to achieve even with today's available technology. The temple compound is approached from South by mounting a flight of steps. A large sculpture of Ganapati is placed on the ground in front of the porch. The place is easily accessible and well connected by Road. (Bangalore - Mulbagal NH4-Road, 110KM). You may also visit the Ganesha Temple which is situated less than 150 Metres from here.
