Halebidu, like Belur is where the tourists flock to marvel at the exquisite 12th century sculpture of the Hoysala dynasty.

 The town of Belur in Karnataka has special significance for me, for this is where we started planning out our wedding.

The town is famous for its Hoysala architecture, in particular for the 12th century Chennakesava temple.

Fields of marigold on the way to our wedding location




Shravanabelagola is a town in Karnataka that is renowned for the monolithic statue, possibly the largest stone statue in the world of Gomateswara. It is hence an important Jain destination.

The trail that is visible on the left side of the hill is the one that one climbs up to view the statue. The inscriptions at the base of the statue are from the 10th century AD.

The views from the top are quite beautiful.
Some fauna and flora at the top

Signs of modernity - a golf course in the distance

Indiranagar Park

Every august the indiranagar park puts on quite a display of flowers, to match the independence day flower show at lalbagh. It is quite a treat with zinnias, salvias, hibiscus, asters, hollyhocks , cleomes and jasmines all in full bloom.
