Belur –  Halebidu – Shravanabelagola Tour

Have been wanting to share this 1 day trip my friend and I did which was mesmerizing to me. I loved all temples and trip was from karanataka government which was on time and very convenient. It starts from badami house, Bangalore and bus stops for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was alright and important I didn’t get sick eating it. Unless you are expecting 5 star meal, you will be fine. 

First stop was Shravanabelagola. Have too many beautiful pictures but I will share few.You have to climb 700+ steps to reach temple. 

After that we visited Belur and Halebidu temples. Temples are all carved and not a single place where it’s not carved. It has all Mahabharata and other stories from scriptures. 10 avatars of Vishnu . Made me very happy that I got to be there and so wanted to share with you all. It took 3 generations to complete temples. You can google and read more abt history if interested.
