Photographer's Note

The Vidyashankara temple at Shringeri was built in commemoration of the pontiff Vidyashankara, around 1357-58 C.E.. It was built by Vidyaranya, patron-saint of Harihara and Bukka, the brothers who founded the Vijayanagara empire. The niches in the temple have a number of sculptures from Hindu, Buddhist and Jain mythologies. The temple is built in stone combining the Hoysala and Dravidian architectural styles.
