Hoysala Expedition Part 6: Gangadhareshwara Temple, Kaidala

Another temple of the Hoysala period standing adjacent to the Channakeshava temple at Kaidala is the Gangadhareshwara Temple. It looks as though this temple was never completed, and the grills and the doors have been installed afterwards, along with other enhancements. A possible recent land dispute has meant that the temple is closed for the visitors. From what is visible from outside, the temple has 4 beautifully carved pillars, and two inscriptions of great historical value, which are all gathering dust due to the neglect.

Here is a little video of the snaps I took at the temple:
