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.

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.
