Chandramouleshwara Temple, Udupi
Chandramouleshwara Temple is located near the Unkal circle in the suburbs of Hubbali in Karnataka. It is said to be built at the time of the Chalukyan period and dates back to almost 900 years.
Some of the major attractions of this temple include the presence of four doors that spans across all directions besides two big Shivalingas. Other major attractions involve the presence of sculpted walls as well as pillars that are built of black granite stones.
For providing the visitors with visual as well as spiritual solaces, the images of dancing Ganesha as well as Jaalandhra are also present in the Temple. The stone inscription in the temple proves its history dating back to 11th or 12th century. Though we can infer that temple is built by a highly skilled team of architects, sculptors, masons as well as artists there is still no record in the history which gives any details on who built it.
Regular transportation services are provided to Chandramouleshwara temple from Hubbali, Bangalore as well as Mangalore. The transportation facilities include buses, taxis as well as autorickshaws.
