Hoysāla Temples—The kings of the Hoysāla dynasty, who ruled over south Karnataka and for some time over parts of Tamil Nadu as well, contributed immensely to temple art and architecture. Their very unique star-shaped temples, mostly built of soft soap stone, are profusely decorated with hundreds of minute sculptures. The most important Hoysāla temples are at Belur (constructed in 1117), Halebid (its construction commenced in 1118) and Somanathapura (13th century).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
