The Hoysala trail – 20 villages in 3 days
Thats right..Ive been on the Hoysala trail in interior Karnataka , visiting about 20 villages and 30 temples – some in ruins such as the one here , which is in a small hamlet called Angadi where the Hoysala Dynasty actually began..One of my best trips ever this year, I must thank my cousin Lalitha and my uncle Muralippa for actually taking me there..
20 villages and 30 temples!!??

20 villages and 30 temples!!?? I think you’ve created some kind of record. How do you manage it ? And who gives you company ?
Waiting to know about those interiors.
