"One of the magnificent structures of South India"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 26, 2017
The name of Santhebennur town in Davangere district brings to mind, images of a historical pushkarini (sacred pond), which is known for its architectural beauty. In fact, the history of Santhebennur is closely linked to the pushkarini. The region was a part of the Vijayanagar empire, and Ken gal Hanumantappa Nayaka, a local palegar. He built a Rama Temple and a pushkarini here in the 16th century. God Rama was the family deity of the Nayaka rulers. Now, even after five centuries, the structure remains intact. Today, the pushkarini with a majestic mantapa at the centre is considered to be one of the magnificent structures of South India.
