Bhadravati: Pages from history…

Bhadravati: Pages from history… 

This Post is a part of the Hoysala Diary. Please Click here to read the main post
Overview: We covered Bhadravati during our trip to Mattur-Hosahalli. In the middle of the city is the LakshmiNarasimhaswamy temple built by the Hoysalas in the 13th century. Being a Live temple, it is a bit crowded compared to other Hoysala temples. Intricate carvings line the walls and ceilings in the interior and the outer walls are carved with deities and dancers. To reach Bhadravati, travel along NH4 till Tumkur, before reaching Tumkur town, turn left towards Shimoga. Bhadravati is around 30 kms before Shimoga. Lot of KSRTC buses ply between Bangalore and Bhadravati.
