Belur & Halebid Travel Guide

Belur and Halebid are two tiny but beautiful temple towns 16 km apart in the southern state of Karnataka. Once at the centre of a great empire ruled by Hoysalas in the 12th century, Belur and Halebid are heritage towns and are home to several exquisite temples which reveal the artistry of Indian sculptors and the mastery of the temple builders of yore.

No less exquisite than the famous temples of Khajuraho, the temples of Belur and Halebid will leave you wanting to come back for a second look.

The temples of Belur & Halebid are magnificently done up with intricate carvings and fine architecture. One must not miss out on the exquisite Hoyasala architecture which is worth a notice in all the temples.
