Description about the temple
This is a beautiful Trikuta temple, probably constructed during the Calukyan period. The temple faces East and it can be approached from Siddharoda Main road in Old Hubli. I was taken by surprise when I found this temple.
Currently restoration work is going on and should be completed by end of 2010.
The temple consists of three kuta(cellar or Garbha griha). There is an idol of Narayana facing East,a Linga facing North and Ganesha facing South. Both Narayana and Ganesha are found to be relocated to this site.
You also find Sapta Maatrike, which is very beautiful and intact facing East, Shiva Parvathi and Ganesha facing North along with Adi Shakti images.
I could not find any person describing about the temple, would let you know more details as I would enquire with Dharwad University, till then the name would be as Trikuta Temple at Hubli.
