Unknown monument
lis 2019 • Dla rodziny
Can easily be the most under rated unknown monument in the densly populous unkal grama of Hubli which not even hubliates know. With zero marketing, zero maintenance, no facility, no signage lies a 12 century western chalukya stone carved temple. This ancient temple needs lot of support and maintenance from govt to uplift and infuse tourism ( currently a mere wedding photoshoot spot) . Definitely a must visit to the claimed swayambhu linga being still worshipped.

this place is walkable distance from hubli dharwad highway. this place host shivaling which is pretty ancient. it was quite peaceful , probably because i visited the place during weekdays in the early morning. i had the whole place for myself and it was easy for me to explore the place and absorb all the history it holds within. overall i would highly recommend this place.

Decent place, amazing architecture
sty 2019 • Znajomi
I have visited this place in January 2019 on my first visit to Hubli Dharwad, the temple of Lord Shiva it isn't active but still people worship Dev and pay their tribute to Lord Shiva.

In terms of architecture I hadn't seen such a great art. If you are architecture lover then it is the best place and most visited for you.

Amazing Art Chandramouleshwara Temple
sie 2018 • Pary
Nice visiting in the evening of first day journey a Chandramouleshwara Temple. Amazing example of ancient temple. However locals are not so keen about maintaining this heritage, approach road is very dirty and dosen't meet to standards of hubli road. Locals surrounding have encroached temple area. Great peaceful place spend good time.

A temple remain

Not an active temple, I would call.
But, still people warship Shiva Linga here.

Not very easy to find this location as it’s at the end of narrow paths.

Not much to see.
At the same time, remained sculptures look interesting.

History hidden away
wrz 2017 • Znajomi
Location: Close to Unkal lake (directions can be tricky, if Google doesn't help, ask around) :-). Narrow lanes, better to park the car and walk.

Temple: 900 year old temple. There are no rules for visit. I did not see a gate either. Could definitely be maintained better. Carry a bottle of water, no shops around.

Ancient Shiva Temple
cze 2017 • Dla rodziny
Chandramouleshwara Temple is an ancient Shiva temple in Unkal village which comes on the Hubli Dharwad National Highway 4. One has to ask directions to reach this temple on reaching the village. There were no other people when we reached the temple. The temple has two Shiv Lingas and is only frequented by the locals. There are some interesting sculptures on the temple walls dating to Chalakyuan era. Overall a very nice and peaceful place although a lot more can be done to preserve and safeguard the temple.

Historical place near Hubli
paź 2016 • Znajomi
It's a very old temple with 4 doors.
Unlike other Shiva temples in the North Karnataka region, the Chandramouleshwar Temple has four doors in as many directions, altogether accounting for twelve doors in the temple besides two Shivalingams and two Naandi statutes at the entrance. One of the two lingams is the 'Chaturmukha Lingam', a four-faced Shiva lingam, which is the speciality of the temple.
Not maintained well by govt. The temple has sculpted walls and pillars of black granite stones. Images of dancing Lord Ganesha and jaalandhra at are a visual delight.

Dilapidated temple near Unkal Lake in Hubballi
paź 2015 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I did the circuit of a set of Western Chalukyan (or Later Chalukyan or Kalyani Chalukyan as opposed to the earlier Badami Chalukyan) Temples around Hubballi and Gadag in North Karnataka during the Ganesh Chaturthi holidays last year (2015). The Western Chalukyas represent the link between their predecessors (Badami Chalukyas) and later schools of Karnataka temple architecture (especially the Hoysalas at Belur, Halebidu, Somnathapur etc). They have been less studies as compared to the exploits of the Badami Chalukyas at the Badami-Aihole-Pattadakkal triangle.

In fact, the overall neglect of these temples in terms of visitors (and maintenance) makes for a sad sight albeit that it makes the visit to much more pleasurable for you have most of these places to yourself.

The most easily accessible of this lot is the Chandramouleeshwara Temple in Hubballi. During my journey, I found that barely a km from the temple, people still didn't know such a thing existed. I found out why when I reached the temple. When fully intact temples can be forgotten, there seems little reason to expect dilapidated temples to be remembered. This temple has no Shikara and a lot else is missing. All that's left intact is the Garbagriha.

A distinctive feature of Western Chalukyan Temples was evident here: the various representations of the Shikara itself in miniature form on the walls. Chalukyan temples are considered a synthesis of both South Indian (Dravida) and North Indian (Nagara) styles and the integrated style is called Vesara.

It might be difficult to expect a fulfilling time here for anyone but given that this is the most easily accessible of the Western Chalukyan Temples, it ought to be better visited.
