Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals.

Lost temples of Karnataka: Haveri

 

This Post is a part of the Chalukya Trail. Please Click here to read the main post
Overview: After visiting Rattihalli, we proceeded towards Haveri via Byadgi. The town of Byadgi is famous for its chillies or 'Byadgi mensinkaai' as it is called in Kannada. We reached Haveri at around 10am. The Siddheshwara temple, built by the Chalukyas in the 10th century is built in Dravidian style of architecture with rich carvings. The temple is made out of soapstone and the inscriptions found here is written in old Kannada. The main mantap bears the sculptures of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Some of the sculptors were damaged inside the temple. The ASI has done a good job in maintaining the temple.
        
 
Kaginele:
 Nearby Haveri is Kaginele, the birthplace of the great saint Kanakadasa where he lived most of his life and wrote many of his compositions. There is a small temple dedicated to Kanakadasa and Adi Keshava at Kaginele.

    
How to reach:  Bus: From Bangalore, there are direct buses to Haveri.
Car/Bike: From Davangere, head on NH4 directly to reach Haveri.
Food/Accommodation: There are some medium budget hotels to stay in Haveri.
