Magnificent temples of Belur and Halebidu are the pinnacle of the unique "Hoysala" art and architecture. The Belur and Halebid temples give a glimpse of Hindu temple art at its glorious best of the 16th century. The temples are famous for their carvings and splendid architecture. The Hoysalas improved on the previous mega empires of Calukyas who are known for building extremely ornate temples in many parts of Karnataka noted for the sculptures in the walls, ceilings, curved pillars and many more. They Hoysala's followed Dravidian style, vesara style of architecture and yet left their mark by adding thier own unique form of architecture in the temple building.

The monument is exceptionally large and its decoration is very lavish. The decorations for this temple still continued after the king by his various successors over a time period of nearly 103 years.
