Somanathapuram Temple



Situated in the unobtrusive village of Somanathpur, 35km from Mysuru, the exquisitely carved, star-shaped temple with triple towers is a perfect example of Hoysala architecture.  The friezes on its outer walls with their intricately cared rows of caparisoned elephants, charging horsemen, and mythological birds and beasts will leave you spellbound. Beautifully sculpted images of gods, godesses and scenes from the epics, as well as the remarkable ornate celings in the pillared hall take your breath away.
