Thanks Ravi for the kind words. The interest in Karnataka was surely initiated by your thread.

Star, I am flattered

My biggest asset is my supporting family.

Infact I was pushed into doing a trip way back in 2006 by my wife. I was like stay at home types. She had planned and executed an Ooty trip. My only demand was "can I take the car", which was agreed. Now there is no looking back. Must thank her immensely for opening me to a new interest.

Team BHP rocks too. I have many good friends from the forum, some whom I have met, and others only through interaction. But as you mentioned the sharing in this forum is just beyond words.


Thanks a ton, Star, for the kind words.

I must sincerely thank addyhemmige, dreamdiesel and Pramod for pitching in and filling in more information here. While writing the log you were there right through with me. A big thanks to you guys. What's the joy without sharing? You guys rock


I wish this log will oneday become a ready reckoner to these areas.

Belur and Halebid are the next spots to be logged in this trip.
Thanks a lot Laluks. That is what T-Bhp is all about, 'The joy of sharing', isn't it?

I would say all your logs are very comprehensive and down to the last detail. Its amazing how you have the patience to capture even the minute details.

Looking forward to the Belur & Halebid part!!!

Hoysala temples at Belur are the height of the artistically excellent periods in Hindu cultural development. According to many, the sculptures rival that of the Khajuraho.

If you have enough time, hire a guide and indulge in the beauty. Guides can be hired from Rs150 onwards.

Now let the pictures speak, but it cannot capture beauty as you see there.

Belur



The Channakeshava temple is still in daily use. According to Lonely Planet, the work on this temple began in 1116 to commemorate the Hoysalas' victory over Cholas at Talakkad, and continued for over a century. Front of the temple is reserved for images of dancers from Kamasutra and the back is reserved for Gods.

We liked Halebid better than Belur, because of the greenery around.

There is also a meuseum, where more sculptures can be viewed. Entry is by a Rs 2/- ticket.
