We have planned to visit belur after covering sakleshpur, belur comes in our way back to  hassan from sakleshpur, its around 36 km from sakleshpur. belur is historically important ancient hindu temple  constructed by vishnuvardhana(vaishnava) in the name of chennakesava.

Belur was the capital of old hoysala empire.nowadays lot of people are coming to this place  for praying and  seeing the architectural excellence
Belur is proposed as one of the world heritage site by UNESCO.
There are so many guides who will be explaining about the specialties of each and every sculptures mostly foreigners uses these services
If your visiting the hoysala architectural temples for the first time you will get surprised  and you may knock yourself with somany questions

It took around 100 years to construct this chennakesava temple.
