Overview: The town itself gets its name from the Harihareshwara temple. I went to Harihar during my trip to Davangere for my sister-in-law's Convocation. Harihar is around 17kms from Davanagere. Dedicated to Lord Harihara, a fusion of Shiva and Vishnu deities. Built in typical Hoysala architecture with square mantapa plan. Built in the 13th century, the temple has many beautiful carvings and inscriptions from the Hoysala dynasty. The temple overlooks the Tungabhadra river. To reach Harihar, direct buses are available from Bangalore. Also it lies in the Bangalore-Hubli railway line. By car, one can reach Harihar by driving along NH4.
