Front view of Amrutheshwari Temple
Surrounding of this place I also visited Banashankari Gudi, Uma Bharathi gudi, & Purudeshwara Gudi which I liked most for its beautiful structure. The large and black stone Amrtesvara Temple is the finest examples produced by the Kalyani Chalukya. The temple has a roof supported by 76 pillars and carvings of mythological figures on its walls.
Evening I went Chandramwleswara Temple, located in Unkal Village which is 4km away from Hubli. This Temple is now totally damaged, because of negligence of Archeological Department., After that I returned back with some beautiful memory of Hubli.
The Chandramouleshwara temple is located in the suburbs of Hubli city, in the Unkal Village. It is a 900 year old Chalukya construction. Inscriptions found in Unkal village date this temple to the 11th or 12th century. This temple has been declared as a protected monument, and is under the administration of the Archaeological Survey of India. But no proper measures have actually been taken to protect and renovate this magnificent temple. The ASI had started to build a compound wall to protect this monument from encroachment and misuse, but the work is just half finished. Kids use the temple premises as a play ground. This historical temple needs urgent action to save it and restore it to its former glory.
