13 Amazing Temples of Karnataka

Written By:

Temple architecture in Karnataka has received adulation from travellers across the world. The temple ruins at various heritage sites such as Hampi, Halebidu, Belur and Pattadakal attract travellers in droves. But many of these temples representing an exotic past are no longer in use and are protected heritage monuments only. While those are covered in our previous travel guides, today, let us travel to the living temples of Karnataka.

There is a special feeling walking into living temples, the vibrant life thronging the gates, the freshly washed stone pathways, the sound and sights of rituals are only few features that make temples so much more than religious destinations. Living temples are places of calm amidst the storm of people, they are places of hope, of wonder and belief. Here is a look at some amazing photos of temples in Karnataka that are religious destinations as well as artistic wonders.
