Superb, Amazing and Intriguing. A visit to this temple is a must for all those who love works on stones and those who like to hear a bit more about the history of this country. The carvings so detailed and exquisite just will suck you in. If it is possible just hire a guide to to understand the history behind each sculpted feature. Though a parts of it might be cooked up but they really add to the beauty of the sculptures. Just a look at one of them will tell you how much effort would have gone and put into creating the complete temple. Have a read about the Hoysala architecture before going for a visit as it helps in better understanding of the stories associated with the temple complex. Avoid visiting mid day when the sun is high as the temple completely is made up of stone and it hurts to walk on really hot stone (if somehow scheduled in afternoons carry pair of two socks it might be of some relief). Keep the visits to mornings or evenings when its still bearable. Do carry some food options with you, as the hotels here are very scarce and may not be of your liking.
A visit to this Temple is a must to understand and really appreciate the level of work and the craftsmanship the Indians were capable back in those days. Do visit the Halebidu Temples also nearby.
