Halebidu or Dwarasamudra, the capital of the Hoysala after Belur has the finest Hoysala temple with twin sancturies. This piece of art was the creation of Ketamalla, a commander of King Vishnuvardhana, as mentioned in an inscription of 1121 CE. The Halebidu temple stands on a platform, and one of the sanctuaries has a Ling (named in memory of the king’s beloved queen). The frontal navaranga of the two sanctums have a connecting open space. The navaranga has wonderful polished and intricately carved rows of pillars, monolithic, stellar in shape.
