    Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple

    Navya posted on 19 February

    Hop over to Nandi Hills to be floored by the architectural splendour of this temple that was first built in the 9th century. Said to be one of the oldest in Karnataka, the temple was modified over time by the Ganga dynasty, Cholas, Hoysalas and the Vijayanagar Empire. So, you can observe different architectural influences that these empires brought to the temple. In the South, there is the Arunachaleswara shrine that was erected by the Ganga dynasty. On the other end, is the Bhoga Nandeeshwara shrine that includes a king’s sculpture. It is believed to be of Rajendra Chola. The Uma Maheshwara Shrine, that sits in the middle, is built entirely of black stone and showcases the intricate stone work of the Hoysalas. The Yali {a mythical creature} pillars that can be found around the temple complex having been contributed by the Vijayanagar Empire.
