Chennakesava Temple, Belur with rainbow in the background.

it was during the same Belur visit that i was able to capture this frame. As said in previous post this temple is fully covered with carvings.

It is stated that "what the Parthenon is to Greece and the Pyramids to Egypt, the Hoysala temples are to South Indian architecture". Jakkanna Achari is credited as the Chief architect of this temple and the one in Halebidu.

Between A.D 1000 and A.D 1346 around 1,500 temples in 958 centres, were built during the Hoysala period.
