DESTINATIONS COVERED

BELUR AND HALEBID - Once the great city of Dwarasamudra – Halebid and Belur, The Benaras of South represents the very best in architecture from the Dynasty of the Hoysalas and took more than 100 years to complete. These monuments were made from soap stone (as it is easy to carve the fresh rock that hardens on exposure to atmosphere). Halebid houses the Shiva temple of Hoysaleshwar and Belur houses the Vishnu temple of Chennakeshava.  The Belur monument is still used as a temple. However the temple at Halebid isn’t.

NAGARHOLE - Nagarhole National Park, once an exclusive hunting reserve of the kings of the Wodeyar Dynasty is now a part of Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. The reserve encompasses three Eco regions - the South Western Ghats with moist deciduous forests, South Western Ghats with montane rain forests, and South Deccan Plateau with dry deciduous forests. The park has rich forest cover, small streams, hills, valleys and waterfalls. The park has a healthy tiger-predator ratio, with many tigers, Indian bison and elephants.

MYSORE - The city of Mysore has been always associated with the royal families and their patronage, be it the Wodeyars or the Sultans. Mysore is a city known for its resplendent palaces and majestic buildings.

DAY 2:               HASSAN

Today, enjoy the sightseeing of Belur and Halebid.

 

Belur is famous for its magnificent Hoysala Temple Complex. The Chennakesava Temple here is the major attraction, built by Hoysala Vishnuvardhana, to commemorate his victory over the Cholas. The facade of the temple is filled with intricate sculptures with no portion left blank. It is the only Hoysala Temple still in active worship. The Hoysala’s used soft soapstone for their structures as they were found suitable for intricate carvings. The fine workmanship and skill visible in this masterpiece is truly breathtaking.

 

Halebid was the capital of the Hoysala. It has one of the finest Hoysala temples. The Hoysaleswara Temple, perched on a star-shaped base amidst lawns, is a sculptural extravaganza. Its walls are richly carved with an endless variety of Hindu deities, sages, stylized animals, birds and friezes depicting the life of the Hoysala Kings.
