Doddagaddavalli Overview

Located about 15 km away from Hassan, the quiet little village of Doddagaddavalli is one of the most offbeat places to visit in Belur. Doddagaddavalli is best known as the home of the Laksmidevi Temple, built by the Hoysalas in 1114 AD.

Shaded by lovely coconut plantations, the temple carries stark reflections of the era of King Vishnuvardhana, in whose rule the temple was erected. As is typical of the Hoysala architecture, the temple is built with soapstone and stands independent of a platform.

This style of temple architecture was later incorporated into the following Hoysala structures. The highlight of the temple is the striking image of the goddess Lakshmi which stands in the Sanctorum. Shrines of Lakshmi, Shiv, Vishnu, and Kali can also be found in this temple.

Distance from Belur: 24.2 km
