Halebidu Temple 40:

Halebidu or Dwarasamudra, the capital of the Hoysala after Belur has the finest Hoysala temple with twin sancturies. This piece of art was the creation of Ketamalla, a commander of King Vishnuvardhana, as mentioned in an inscription of 1121 CE. There is a row of taller figures of gods and goddesses and various manifestation of Vishnu etc. on the wall, all wonderful works of art. The two garbhagrihas are stellar in shape, and the zigzag exterior wall design here gives wonderful light and shade effect to the figures which look different at different times of the day.
