This imposing figure of a dancer has not diminished its beauty and elegance despite its large size. The light can play magic when it comes to viewing stone sculptures. ( Halebidu, Dist. Hassan, Karnataka, 2016 ) - Milind Sathe Halebidu was the 12th-13th century capital of the Hoysala empire. The Hoysaleshwara temple was built during this time by Ketamala (around 1121 AD) and attributed to King Vishnuvardhana, the Hoysala ruler. It is believed to have been completed around 1160 AD by Kedaroja, the chief architect of Vishnuvardhana's son and successor Narasimha I (1142 - 1173). It enshrines Hoysaleshwara and Shantaleshwara, named after King Vishnuvardhana Hoysala and his Queen Shantala Devi. ( source : Wikipedia )
