The Kashivishveshvara temple and the Nanneshwara Temple in Lakkundi are a great example of 11th century AD Chalukyan architecture. The Nanneshwara Temple is also referred to as the Sun Temple. Both of these temples are on a raised platform and have exquisite carvings on their outer walls.

The visit to Lokkundi was based on my reading of the history of the place. The place was of great importance with several inscriptions siting the importance, during the period of Kalyani Chalukyas.
This is one of the 6 monuments preserved by the Government of India. It was disheartening to see several other monuments are covered by huts.
The architecture of Western Chalukyas are not as grandeur as their predecessors the Rashtrakutas or their contemporaries the Cholas.
The temple is small on an elevated platform. Adjacent to it is the Kasi Viswanatha temple. Less than a kilometer is the Jain-Brahma temple and the museum. Walking further and crossing the road are two more monuments.

Lokkundi is about 8 km from Gadag and easily reachable by local buses.

A beautiful temple with intricate carvings. It is located right opposite the Kasi Viswanatha Temple. The thing I loved most about the temple was the carving of 1/2 inch men. The level of detail on them is just mind blowing. There are 20 different pillars but unlike other temples in this area, these pillars have no designs. It is said that 4 of the pillars were brought from else where and placed here.

Worth a stop over if you are already in Lakkundi.
