Trikuteshwara temple, Gadag & Lakkundi

Trikuteshwara temple, Gadag & Bhimambika temple, Itagi

 
 
Overview: From Aihole, the next place we visited was the Trikuteshwara temple in Gadag. Passing through the crowded streets of Gadag, we reached the Trikuteshwara temple. It looked like a temple lost in the civilization. Inside the temple, it was silent and we could closely admire the beauty of the sculptor who designed this temple. The inner sanctorum has sculptors of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Also has one more temple next to it dedicated to Goddess Saraswati. There is a huge well also which was closed for the visitors. The carvings and chiselling were so delicate and exquisite and is a masterpiece of the Kalyani Chalukyas.
