Bharateshwara Temple, Avani

Ramlingeshwar Temple complex at Avani has several shrines and one of them is Bharateshwara Temple. This temple is built by rulers of Nolamba dynasty in 10th Century A.D. 



The entrance to this shrine is beautifully carved and very ornate with guards on the either side.



The temple has Shiva-linga in the sanctum and there is a black stone Bull facing it in the outer area.



The pillars inside the temple have a octagonal shape with small carvings all around it.
