Hoysaleswara temple is a temple dedicated to Hindu god Shiva. The construction was completed in 1121 CE. The temple is a simple dvikuta vimana (plan with two shrines and two superstructures), one for "Hoysaleswara" (the king) and the other for Shantaleswara and is built with chloritic chist Soapstone or potstone). The temple complex as a whole is elevated on a jagati (platform), which according to historian Kamath, is a feature that became popular in contemporary Hoysala constructions.
