LORD CHENNAKESAVA OF BELUR

UNIQUENESS

Belur, the first and final word in the sculptured architectural monuments, the standing specimen of chisel work of non-pariel excellence, in Black Stone; the museum exhibit-piece ' of unsurpassed splendour, in variety and delicacy; the stone- cutters' lndradanus; the connoisseurs' Kalakshetra; the aesthetes Mayasabha; the Hoyasalas' Kirthi Pataka; the commoners' wonderland of myriad splendor; the pilgrims' mokshadwara; and the tourists' open-air museum is located in the Hassan district of Karnataka state, renowned for a characteristic type of sublime culture that won the appreciation of all and at all times at it. This unparalleled architectural marvel that made the superlatives bent in eternal veneration has many more plus points that threw a halo round the goddess of sculpture; for it is this temple that is treasuring up the vestiges of Vishnu Vardhan's spirit of catholicity, besides the inexhaustible thirst for patronage of arts and crafts; it is this shrine that came into existence under the powerful influence of Sri Ramanuja, the peerless Visistadwaithamata Pravakta.
