Brahmadeva Temple, Shravanabelagola

It is a small shrine at the foot of the Indragiri hill near the beginning of the stairs. This temple in Shravanabelagola was erected by Rangaiya, younger brother of Girigowda of Hirisave, probably in 1679 A.D. 


The shrine has a idol of Brahma Yaksha. This shrine has an upper storey, evidently a later addition, called as the Jaraguppe Basadi.
