Somnathpura Temple, Mysuru (Mysore)

Historic Site · Religious Site
Marvel at the fine architecture and artwork of Somnathpura Temple, a Hoysala temple made from soapstone. The well-preserved complex dates back to 1268, when the area was ruled by Hoysala king Narasimha III. Sitting in an impressively high-walled enclosure, the temple consists of three main shrines, all to forms of the Hindu god Vishnu. Outside, note the symmetry of its architectural design, the horizontal ornamental patterns, and the details of the roofs; inside, linger over the intricate interiors and finely wrought sculptures.

  • One of the very old and famous architectural temple which should be definitely visited if anyone is planning towards that side. Each and every pillar and structure gives the feel of magnificent design on how it was crafted. Visit charges are 25 per adult and kids no ticket at all.
  • It is an architectural beauty. One has to take help of guide to understand it better. The various design and the logic behind the design.
