At a distance of about 1 KM from Hoysaleshwara Temple in Halebid, Kedareshwara Temple is a Hoysala temple built by King Ballala II and his younger Queen Abhinava Ketala Devi in 1319 AD.
Kedareswara Temple is a fine example of Hoysala style of temple architecture. The carved ceilings of the temple are supported by finely polished pillars. The magnificent idol of Nandi Vahana in its lying posture adds extra elegance to the temple. Unfortunately portions of the temple collapsed and they are never restored again.
The main shrine is raised over a beautiful star-shaped platform of smooth stone. The walls, the tower, the doorway and the ceiling are magnificently carved. As seen in Hoysaleswara temple, this temple has classic friezes and scenes from the epics.
