Keladi

The first capital of Keladi Nayakas, the village of Keladi is well-known for a group of temples that exhibit elements of Kadamba, Hoysala and Dravida style of temple architecture. Among the three, the Rameshvara and Veerbhadreshvara temples are a mixed pattern of Hoysala and Dravidian style while the Parvati temple is relatively small. The Keladi Museum preserves a collection of copper inscriptions, palm leaves, coins, several interesting antiques of the Nayaka’s period.
