The temple is dedicated to Channakeshava Swamy in the Hassan district, about 200 km from Bangalore. The C.U. Built in the year 1100, the triangular shrine appears to have not yet been built. Because despite two attempts in thirty years, it has not been successful. The neglect of government departments still remains incomplete.
