Nuggehalli Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Seva Samithi
Importance of the Place
The historical temples of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha & Sadashiva at Nuggehalli belonging to 11th century Hoysala period architecture is a must visit place of tourist/cultural importance. The sculptures in the temple tease the mind with a beauty that would linger in one’s mind for ages. These wonderful temples come under the purview of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and they have classified these as the “Living Temple – Monument”, (which are very few in number) wherein the pooja to the Almighty is being performed uninterrupted from day one. This classification is given to about 50 odd temples in India. Karnataka is indeed fortunate to have quite a few of these temples which have a Great & Hoary past.
