Hoysala Expedition Part 34: Someshwara Temple, Haranahalli

Just a few hundred meters from the Channakeshava temple at Haranahalli, is the less maintained but equally well ornated Someshwara Temple. The temple is an ekakuta shrine hosting the Someshwara Linga in the main sanctum sanctorum, and is believed to have been constructed at the same time period of the Keshava temple, in 1234 AD, by brothers Peddanna, Somanna and Keshanna. Sculptor Mallitamma's magical hands are at work here too.
