This comes under Archeological Survey of India. There is nothing to capture the temple architecture but the sculpture is very very beautiful. It is located at Kondajji village, 17 kms from Hassan (In between Hassan and Halebidu, this road is mentioned as Salagame road from Hassan City). Video is allowed there. Please visit that place.
