Shiva Temples, Barkur

One of the prominent structure of ancient times in Barkur is Kathale Basadi.  In the same complex one can also see Hindu Temples proving that Jainism and Hinduism were all together.

These structures dating back to 12th century located just behind the basadi. There are twin temples that are 30 mts apart from each other. 

In front of one of them is Nandi, that tells us that it was a Shiva temple.  On plan they are almost similar and have a garbhagriha, sukhanasi and pillared mukh mantapa. The pillars in the mukhamantapa are moderately ornamented.

The exterior walls are plain with very few Carvings there are few carvings on the temple.
