Halebeedu, a small town in the Hassan district of Karnataka, is known for its temples built during Hoysala period. Along with Belur and Shravanabelagola, Halebeedu forms the Golden Triangle of Karnataka tourism.

Like Halebeedu, the Belur town too has several shrines built during Hoysala reign. Halebeedu and Belur are called as the ‘Twin towns’.

The word Halebeedu means ‘ruined city’; earlier it was called as Dwarasamudra which meant ‘entrance to the ocean’. Halebeedu was the royal capital of the Hoysala Empire in the 12th century. It was during this period, many temples were constructed. Halebeedu’s fall began after it was invaded by the Delhi sultanate.

Tourist can see many prominent temples like Hoysaleswara temple, Shantaleshwara temple and Kedareshwara temple which had been built by Ketamala and dedicated to Vishnuvardhana, ruler of Hoysala Empire. The temples are named after the Vishnuvardhana Hoysala and his wife, Queen Shantala.

These temples are built out of Chloritic Schist, a soft stone which allows minute detailing work on the walls of the temple. The sculptures of the temple reveal the usage of ivory and sandalwood in the construction of these temples. The temples are often compared with the temples of Khajuraho because of the heavy carvings and magnificence.

Famous for the Chennakesava temple complex, Belur is a small town set on the banks of Yagachi river in Hassan district of Karnataka. Temples in the ancient city speak of the brilliance and exquisite craftsmanship of Hoysala architecture style. Belur was earlier called Velapuri and was the second capital of the Hoysala Empire. After the invasion of Delhi Sultanate, Belur became the capital.

The prime attraction in Belur is the Chennakesava temple complex which has a shrine dedicated to Chennakesava (Lord Vishnu). The Kappe Chennigaraya temple, built by Shantaladevi, wife of Hoysala king Vishnuvardhana, stands next to it. There are two other temples in the complex. Pushkarni or the step well is another attraction. The temples are built of light green soapstone which allowed intricate detailing work on the walls. Ivory and sandalwood were also used to build sculptures in the temple. These temples are often compared with the those at Khajuraho. The Chennakesava temple is one of the classic examples of Hoysala architecture.

Dedicated to mark the victory of King Vishnuvardhana over Cholas in 1117, it is believed, the temples took 103 years to complete. Carvings on the temples depict episodes from the Mahabharata, Ramayana, and the Upanishadas. Sculptures of birds and animals can also be seen

Manjarabad Fort was constructed by Tipu Sultan, the ruler of Mysore as a strategic defensive location. The fort served this use because it commands the approach to the plateau beyond Sakleshpur from the coast. Situated on a hillock, the fort is on one level, unlike other forts, which are multi-level.

The only source of water in the fort are cross-shaped pits with steps leading into them. The fort is located just outside Sakleshpur on National Highway (NH) 48. Work on the fort commenced in 1785 and ended in 1792. The star-shaped fort was also used to store the ammunitions, during the reign of Tipu Sultan. Its strategic location enables soldiers in the fort to see the British army coming from Mangalore.

From the fort, tourists can get an aerial view of the Western Ghats. Out of the many chambers in the fort, some were used to house the horses. Certain chambers served the soldiers as kitchen and bathroom. A tunnel in the fort leads to Srirangapatna. Later, the tunnel was used to dump dead bodies. The fort has Islamic style of architecture and arched entranceways. The forts sit at an elevation of 3,240 ft above sea level.
