Mukteshwara Temple Overview

Ranked 4 of 14 sightseeing in Haveri

Mukteshwara Temple, situated in the Chaudayyadanapura village, represents architecture styles of the Kalyani Chalukyas and the Senas of Devagiri. It is located in Ranebennur taluk of Haveri District and is dedicated to Lord Shiva in the Veera Saivam form. It also has few Kannada inscriptions that date back to the medieval period.

It is believed that earlier Suddha Saivam was practiced in the shrine which later shifted to Veera Saivam. The rituals being practised during the Suddha Saivam period included worshipping idol forms like Nataraja and Trinetra avatar. After the adoption of Veera Saivam form, the temple started worshipping the Shivalinga in the temple.

The inscriptions carved on the exteriors and interiors of the shrine provide evidences that the region was once ruled by the Gupta dynasty. This temple also renders authentic information about King Chandragupta Vikramaditya, who ruled from his seat in Ujjain.
