Belur and Halebid Excursion
Explore the architectural marvels of Belur and Halebid on this full day tour. These ancient towns were once both powerful capitals of the Hoysalas rulers of Southern India. Today they hold two of the greatest monuments of medieval art in the world.
The rulers of Hoysala were great patrons of art and architecture and commissioned unique temples where they could pray to the gods to ask them for help on the battlefield. The Hoysala temples of Belur and Halebid are not huge like the usual temples of the south, but smaller and perched on star-shaped foundations. The temples have exceptionally accurate proportions and exquisite detailing. The Temple of Chennakeshava, built in 1117 AD is full of gleaming, polished black stone which looks like metal and every surface is covered in carved figures.
