Sri Vidya Shnakara Swamy Temple, Durgadhalli

The small village of Durgadhalli close to famous tourist destination Devrayan Durga has an old temple.



It is believed that Sri Vidya Shnakara Swamy had visited this place and stayed there. The temple here is almost 900 years. 



The deity in this temple is Lord Shiva. This temple has been recently renovated. 



There is a beautiful flowering tree near the temple.
