All of our temples are like having the largest collection of all the most beautiful gemstones. But one of them holds the most special place in your heart. Which one is yours? Although an extremely close competition with Kailasa Temple, my favorite is HOYSALESHWARA TEMPLE.
Hoysaleshwara temple, Halebidu,It's not a temple. It’s a parallel universe. A time portal. A standing testimony to the ingenuity of our ancestors. It's existence speaks of the extraordinary achievements in science, architecture, mathematics. 900 years ago!
