Beauitiful Temple

It is a beautiful temple natural shadow was built as shivalaya. The darshan was free of cost not paisa vasool. From main road to Chaya Someswara Temple road is not good.

Appreciable work and a must visit

All the students of history to appreciate the skill of the sculptor and appreciate the intelligence of the sculptor way back in 12th century should visit the place. There are three temples placed on three sides of the mantapa with four pillars. Main temple is of Chaya Someswara Swamy. In this temple, a longitudinal shadow prevails on the back wall throughout the day. This shadow is due to light falling cris cross. Opposite to this temple, Sun god temple is situated. When we stand at the entrance of the sanctum sanctorum of the temple, our shadow falls on the opposite walls as two images. On the other side, Dattatreya temple is located. Surprisingly, our shadow falls as three images. Everyone should visit the place to appreciate the skills of our ancestors.
