Jo, these temples are from the Hoysala period in Belur and Halebedu in Karnataka. Belur and Halebedu are neighbouring cities that are about 3-4 hours away from Bangalore.
If you like to see intricate sculptures this is the place to be.
The last picture I have uploaded here is to highlight the painstaking lengths to which sculptors have gone to render the strings in the instrument. Note the finger under the string!
