Temples of Karnataka 8 - Galageshwara @ Galaganatha


Bottomline: This unique temple was built in 11th century by Western Chalukya kings. Construction started during the reign of Someshwara II and ended during the reign of Vikramaditya VI. Located at a scenic place overlooking river Tungabhadra, the temple has simple interiors but it is the exteriors which catch the attention.

Wow. Sometimes I wonder how they managed to build such magnificent architecture in the 11th century. And where have we lost our own indigenous design and aesthetics? Why can't we continue to build amazing architecture like this?
