1. Lakṣmī Narasimhā Trikūṭa, Nuggehalli, Hassan, Karnataka

One of the most famous & beautiful Hoysaḷa trikūṭas, the Lakṣmī Narasimhā temple is truly a gem. It is dedicated to Lakṣmī Narasimhā in the main shrine and Keśava and Veṇūgopāla in the other two.

2. Only the main shrine has a Hoysaḷa vimāna (superstructure). The other two did not have the vimāna originally and were later added, perhaps during the Vijayanagara times. The temple was built in 1246 CE. Image
3. The temple was constructed by Bomanna Dandanayaka, a commander of the Hoysaḷa king Veer Someshwara. It is notable for its exquisite quality of sculpture and some of these pieces, very uncharacteristically of Hindu artists, are signed by the artist Malitamma. Image
