Harihara Temples

#0 of 3 things to do in Osian

Constructed in around 12th or 13th-century, Harihareshwara Temple is the testimony of spiritual faith and radiant fabrication by famous Hoysala dynasty. The temple is devoted to Harihara god and is starred with sets of figurines and an impressive gallery. On the banks of river Tungabhadra, this temple is a living example of one of the most impressive works of the Hoysala times. This age-old temple is very unprecedented in its characteristic and also known as God's own house. The temple is besieged by different hills of Harihareshwar, Pushpadri and others in the vicinity. The most unusual character of this temple resides in the 5 feet tall idol of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Lord Harihara is the fusion of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. The qualities of Lord Shiva are noticeable in the right hand and those of Lord Vishnu are apparent in the left hand. History lovers will find this area astounding due to the presence of multiple shreds of evidence of Hoysala dynasty inside the Harihareshwara temple. Its fashion and statues are mesmerisingly astonishing. Zealots can also take a bath in the nearby river Tungabhadra. A great time can be spent here alongside the pious river. Though the exterior of this temple is in a dilapidated status due to the absence of preservation, this temple is worth a call. This stunning temple is roughly 15 km from the city of Davangere.

Entry timing: 7:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M (Closed between 2:00 P.M to 4:00 P.M)
