The Arakeshwara Temple is a consecrated Hindu temple which traces its origin from the early 19th-century. It was established during the dominion of the Mysore Kingdom and is formulated in conventional Dravidian fashion. It is said by an antiquarian and Epigraphist B. Lewis to the British period,  that the temple was bequeathed by Maharaja Krishnaraja Wodeyarr III, the king of the princely Mysore, during the British Raj in India. Nevertheless, the original temple is much older and was a part of the era of Kulottunga Chola I. Under Karnataka state division of the Archeological survey of India, the Arakeshwara temple is a preserved monument. It is a fascinating temple which is embellished with pious idols of Durgai, Bhairavar and Abhayangara Lingam.
