Chola Temples

The Chola dynasty, which is an important ruling dynasty in South India, ruled over Bangalore for over a century. Naturally, their influence on the city can be seen in the form of the numerous temples that they built all across the city. The temples are of rich historical significance since they deal with important rulers of history, who pretty much shaped the map of Bangalore. This is why, centuries later, these monuments continue to be studied and observed. The Old Madiwala Someshwara Temple, the Halasuru Someshwara Temple, the Domlur Chokkanathaswamy temple and Sri Ananda Lingeshwara Temple are some such temples, that are more than 1500 years old and boast of the once glorious empire of the Cholas. People on a historical tour of the city definitely should not skip this one, because the amazing architecture and intricate skills that your history book talked about come to life here.
