Ramalingeshwara Temple Complex, Avani

Ramalingeshwara Temple Complex at Avani is not only a place of religious and historical importance, but also archaeological wonder. I visited this temple with my family when I went on a tour of Mulubagal district.



This temple complex at the base of hillock is constructed in 10th century  by Nolamba dynasty and later renovated by the rulers of Chola dynasty.



This huge temple complex has many temples and they are:
  • Ramalingeshwara Temple
  • Laxmanalingeshwara Temple
  • Bharathalingeshwara Temple 
  • Shatrugnalingeshwara Temple
  • Vali Sugriva Temple
  • Subramanya Temple
  • Kamakshi Temple
