Venugopalswamy Temple, submerged in KRS backwaters for decades, is now being restored to its eternal glory on the banks of river Kaveri. When complete it  will have its entrance facing the backwater, that alone must make it the most beautiful temple in Mysore apert from its medieval Hoysala architecture.

  1. An interesting aspect of our ancient architecture is that the masons just assembles the cut stones to build the temples, no cement was used. That is why today it is possible to dismantle old temples and relocate them.

  2. not even lime was probably used for this one…

    It was awesome to be there 🙂 Thanks for taking us 🙂

  3. Fantastic….what symmetry, what beauty!!!
