Malleswara (Kalleswara) Temple - Hulikal

Malleswara (Kalleswara) Temple was not in our list unexpected Rajesh sir got some information about this place and by curiosity we headed to see this temple. After getting right direction from villagers we reached this wonderful place. This temple situated in corner of the Hulikal village and just 2 km from Aremalenahalli. This temple was recently re-constructed there are also a few detached stones standing in the enclosure.
Water has been taking place around the temple. This 12th century Hoysala temple has been selected not for any exuberance of its decorative but still it was very attractive and a fine specimen of Hoysala architecture. Some of the images carved on the entrance walls and back side walls. It is a single celled Shiva temple and has an impressive and lofty stone tower.

Looks great! Is it possible to go inside the temple considering the water it is surrounded by on all sides?
