Veerabhadra Temple, Lepakshi

(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
A particularly precarious temple to visit, Veerabhadra Temple is perfect for those who have an interest in history and architectural history. Believed to been built in the 15th century, the temple is located on a hill named Kurma Saila which is referred to being a tortoise shaped hill. Take time to inspect the ceilings embellished with murals that depict scenes from the Epics, Mahabarata, The Ramayana and the Puranas. Notice particularly the clothing and facial expressions in the drawings. The temple is free to enter.
