Heritage Waiting

What was earlier known as the city of "Velapuri",the capital of glorious "Hoysala dynasty" is now a quiet little town of Belur in the state of Karnataka. Being great patrons of art and scuptures the king of Hoysala dynasty built many magnificient stone carved temples,among which "Chennakeshava temple" is the main attraction. A priest is waiting for the devotees to come as the temple still holds the daily prayers for the devotees.
