Day trip from Bangalore to Belur & Halebid with guide and by private car

Belur & Halebid temples have one of the finest collection of sculptures in India. The sculptures are fantastic in terms of the intricacy of the carvings. Best exemplifies by the bracelets on the arms of one of the dancer statues can be moved up and down! Another noteworthy characteristic of sculptures in Belur is that sculptures at Belur is that they are signed off by the respective sculptors like in a painting, often as a boastful epithet. Our cultural evangelist will take you back in time to the 12th century to relive the glory days of this Kingdom.
