  • This is a temple village in one of the small villages .. no crowd as it is not marketed for tourism .. After the temple just trek around the village for nature's feel and treatment ..

  • A beautiful Hoysala era temple with the unique feature of having 5 Shivalingam in the temple. The temple caretaker can explain you some point about the interiors. It’s located opposite a big lake away from any town or village amidst farmland. There are no tickets and you will rarely find people and even more rarely any vehicles, didn’t find any shops or public transport to the place directly, own vehicle should be preferred and can be parked outside the compound gate on the road. The interiors are dimly lit but the place was still kept well maintained.
  • Among all the Hoysala temples , Govindanahalli’s Panchalinga Temple in Mandya District, is very UNIQUE because it has FIVE sanctums , all of which are in a long line , opening into a common pillared hall and all facing east . The hall has two porched entrances . The outer walls have small and not too many sculptures , in addition to aedicules and a few pierced ( jaali) windows all making for a very neat appearance . The temple was built in the 13th Century, during Veera Someshwara’s reign . The protected monument is maintained well , and there was a recent round of renovation too .
