Chola Temples Bangalore List 1035 AD


I have often stressed the fact that though there were fifty six kingdoms in India from ancient times, though there were wars between various kings, the culture was so advanced the Conquerors built temples, tanks and roads in the kingdom which they have won.

People were not harassed as a general rule though there are exceptions as in the case of Vatapi, now in Karnataka, which was burnt down Narasimha Varma Pallava in his war against Pulikesin1 .

However the King’s of Tamil Nadu built temples and tanks in Karnataka.

The Hoysalas built temples in Tamil Nadu and Hoysala architecture had left an impression in Tamil Nadu Architecture.

Will be writing on this.

Many temples in Bangalore were built by Cholas, some of them dating back to 1035 AD.
