Banawasi in uttara kannada was the last destination to be visited before heading back to bangalore. Banawasi is of major pilgrimage centers in utara kannada and has an amazing madhukeshwara temple which is an amazing. The temple is one of the oldest in Karnataka and is dedicated to lord shiva.

Banawasi Temple


The temple is built by the kadambas and the main attraction is the nandi statue which is carved in such as way that one eye looks at shiva and the other eye at parvati. The nandi statue shows the skill of the people who have carved it.

Another interesting piece of architecture is the stone bed which is carved from a single piece of stone.

Roaming around the temple and clicking some snaps we spent some time there before heading back to the car. The next stop being shimoga to rest for the night as we had a long drive back to bangalore the next day.

Snaps can be found here
