A view of the gopura from the north side
The image shows a view of the gopura from the northeast side. The outer entrance to the Chennakeshava Temple is through this gopura, which is attached to the prakara (a protective wall that surrounds the temple).
Located 150 miles west of Bengaluru in southern India, the Belur Chennakeshava Temple is a magnificent temple dedicated to Vishnu. King Vishnuvardhana of the Hoysala dynasty commissioned the temple in 1167 CE to commemorate his victory over the Cholas at Talakadu. After his death, his successors – Narasimha I and Veera Ballala II – continued the work, and it took 103 years to complete it.
