LORD CHENNAKESAVA OF BELUR

The fifth is a pilaster series with female figures in between, the next comprises of eaves with bead work, adorned with continuous creepers and figurines of humans and animals, and the top most is a rail beautified with many sculptured images, placed in niches surmounted by ornamental bands. Above this is seen the perforated screens with eyes atop. The walls are adorned with as many as 80 figures of divinities of the Hindu pantheon, like Vamana, Varaha, Narasimha, Vishnu, Siva, Durga, Parvathi, Saraswathi, Ganesha, Madana, Rati, Garuda, Brahma along with epic hereos, like Arjuna, Ravana etc. As you go round seeing each piece you complete the pradakshana of the temple as a matter of fact. A novelty!

The main mandir dedicated to Chennakesava has three main entrances with door frames and lintels adorned with perforated screens in attractive designs, with pairs of artistic images at the jambs, like the lovely images of Manmatha and Rati at the eastern
door way; Hanuman and Garuda at the southern, and alluring women bearing chauris at the northern.
