Hoysala architecture

This temple close to main halebeedu hoysaleswara temple just 1 km. Construction and model is same as belur and halebeedu temple. When hoysaleswara empire was built around 92 temple in their era. Construction is unbelievable like other temple. Well maintained by ASI. Not much rush this Temple. No separate parking we can park outside the temple.

Resembles the Hoysala architecture

Just a few yards from the Jain Basadi in Halebidu is the Kedareswara temple. The Shivalinga in this temple is reported missing and kept in London museum. The style of construction is very similar to Halebidu temple reflecting Hoysala architecture. This temple is said to be constructed by Sethumalla a minister of king Vishnuvardhana.
