Hoysala is a short distance away from many of the famous architectural marvels of the world
Belur : Belur was the early capital of the Hoysala Empire. The main attraction in Belur is the Chennakesava temple complex which contains the Chennakesava Temple ( dedicated to Chennakeshava , meaning handsome Vishnu) as the centre piece, surrounded by the Kappe Chennigraya temple built by Shantaladevi, queen of king Vishnuvardhana.
Halebidu : Halebidu was the 12th century capital of the Hoysalas. The Hoysaleswara temple was built during this time by Ketamala and attributed to Vishnuvardhana, the Hoysala ruler. It enshrines Hoysaleswara and Shantaleswara, named after the temple builder Vishnuvardhana Hoysala and his wife, Queen Shantala.
Shravanabelagola : It is one of the most important Jain pilgrim centers. In Kannada language, "Bel" means white and "kola", the pond, an allusion to the beautiful pond in the middle of the town. It reached a high point in architectural and sculptural activity under the patronage of Gangas of Talakad and the Vishwakarma Brahmin Sthapathis needs to be eulogized for putting this excellent architectural master piece in to reality.
Manjrabad fort : Manjarabad Fort is situated about 30 Kms from Hoysala resort and it is visited by a large number of tourists throughout the year. Set at a height of about 3,240 ft. above sea level, this fort is supposed to have been built during the reign of Tipu Sultan. It is constructed out of stones and mud and it has chambers all around. This Fort served as a strategic defensive location during Tipu Sultan's rule as it commands the approach to the plateau beyond Sakleshpur from the coast. It is also believed that there is a tunnel that connects the Manjarabad Fort to another fort in Srirangapattana near Mysore.
Shettihalli church : The Rosary Church at Shettihalli, near Hassan in Karnataka was built by French Missionaries in 1860. The village of Shettihalli had to be relocated due to the construction of the Hemavathy Reservoir but the Rosary Church got submerged and this is what remains of the church. Strangely, the waters have depleted its structure but not the peace and serenity of the place.
