Temples of Karnataka

First Online: December 03, 2004
Page Last Updated: April 04, 2014

I have compiled this list of important historical temples of Karnataka with their periods of construction to aid researchers in dating the sculptures and artifacts you see throughout Kamat's Potpourri website. It is not a comprehensive list, but a list of temples that we have studied and documented. Please see references listed below for more details. I have hyper-linked the name of the towns where we have more information available.--Vikas Kamat
