With the oldest inscriptions of Kannada in a village near Belur, the Belur Halebidu region might as well be the origin of the language! Located in Halmidi village, a duplicate of these inscriptions can be seen today.
Nearby, the Chennakeshava Temple is a popular sightseeing spot, with its unique pillars and sculptures. Hoysaleshwara Temple in Halebidu also has a range of sculptures, and showcases ancient South Indian temple architecture.
That said, Belur and Halebidu would make an excellent stop on a heritage tour!
