Relic-Inside Belur temple

Relic- Inside Chanakeshava Temple

 A Relic

Chanakeshava Temple is a temple in India that doesn’t fully function. Built in the 1100’s and into the 1200’s by King Vishnuvardhan. It is believed that sometime in the 1400’s it was looted and plundered and ever since that time the temple stopped functioning as a regular temple. But the amazing sculptures turned it into a ‘relic’ attracting tourist from all over.
