(170+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Dravidian in style, Mahabaleswara Temple remains a major Hindu site, dedicated to Shiva Linga. Probably built in the 4th century, the temple includes a carved stone image of Lord Shiva--the deity is depicted in the standing position, with two arms. Although the temple itself isn't quite so ancient, the Shiva image is allegedly well over 1,000 years old.
