LakshmiNarayana Temple , Hosaholalu , Krishnarajapete - masterpiece Part 2 - Bangalore picnic spots

In this second article of LakshmiNarayana Temple , we cover the internal structure of the temple. On entering inside this temple one may experience a sense of satisfaction and brings peace to one's mind - such is the way the carvings are sculptured and the feel inside. 

On tapping pillar stones , we could hear the tone of tapping a steel. The priest here said these pillars were brought to this place using elephants which used to push them all the way , in those days during construction.

We may notice even the door entrance chappara too is beautifully carved showing the glory. Next to this is the Venugopalaswamy idol which priest mentioned is unique holding shanka on the right hand.
