    We were unable to gather any information or details about this temple including its name. We named it the Shiva temple since the temple housed a Shiva Linga. The temple is situated right at the entrance of Aihole from Hungund side.

    There are so may temples which do not have a name as such but are very beautiful.

  2. Marvelous post as always! I, too, love the royal seal. I find it really interesting/sad that there are so many beautiful temples that don't have a name! Hope you have a great week!
