The Government is supposed to protect these temples from the anti-social elements!!

While allocating budget, will they forget such item of expenditure which are most just and necessary.??

Interestingly, the ASI has asked the police department to withdraw the security as it was unable to clear the dues pending for a decade.

Built during the Hoysala era, the historic Hoysaleshwara temple in southern Karnataka attracts tourists from across the world for its marvellous carvings.

The Lakshmi Devi temple, an architectural wonder, is located in Doddagaddavalli, a village in Hassan District of Karnataka. The Lakshmi Devi Temple, built in a chatuskuta style (four shrines), is one of the earliest known temples built in the Hoysala style.


A Hoysala-era idol of Mahakali at the Doddagaddavalli Temple near Hassan district, Karnataka was found damaged on Friday. The temple, an Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) monument, was built in the 12th Century by Hoysala dynasty.

Reportedly, the incident came to light on Friday morning when local people visited the temple and found that one of the idols of the deity was damaged. It is suspected that miscreants in search of hidden treasure took advantage of the lack of security and vandalised the idol in the process.
