A user's photo.Exquisite sculptures at Kiradu Someshvara Temple
Built in the 11th century, the Someshvara ancient temple is said to be the best example of its kind today. Cons...tructed in honour of Lord Shiva (the Destroyer in the holy trinity of Hindu gods), it has a rather stumpy multi-turreted tower and beautiful sculptures dedicated to the god. The inner sanctum has a resplendent image of the Lord. At its base, is a large reverse-curve lotus, which has a resemblance with the early Chola Temples of south India. This ancient temple also depicts scenes from the Hindu epic Ramayana. Other notable featuresare sculptures of apsaras and vyalas
