Ikkeri Karnataka

Recently I made my last trip in Karnakata. The place we first visited is Ikkeri. The place is around 3kms from Sagara which is in Shimoga district of Karnataka. We reached the temple around 9 in the morning and it was slightly drizzling. The view was very beautiful. I could just stand in the rain and watch the beauty of the temple over there. Its all green everywhere with only pujari chanting in the temple.
Here are the few snaps attached to it.
 This is the main temple entrance.... Its very unlike to other south indian temples.

This is the outside view of the temple.

 The temple walls with sculpture and they are high enough.

 The greenery in the temple surroundings.
 The Nandi statue right outside the main temple.

The sculpture on the walls of the temple.
The high entrance on one side of the temple. There are three entrances to the temple. The sculpture is unique for each entrance of the temple.

To know the history of the temple, read the wiki link.

What a beautiful temple. Thanks for the link, I am rushing there.
Kindly do away with word verification. This is a hindrance and people would not leave a comment.

Why do you call it your last trip to Karnataka. Life is not that short!

ఈ దేవాలయము చాల అందముడ ఉన్నది. లింక్ లో వెళ్లి చదివేను గాని ఎక్కువు ఏమి లేదు.
