Micro Drilling Machining Gear Technology 12 Century Hoysaleswara Temple

I will be writing exclusively on the architecture of Temples in India, Temple wise.

The temples built by the Hoysalas were in no way lagging behind.

The Hoysaleswara temple built by Vishnuvardhana , in Hampi around 12th century AD.

I have written on the architectural marvels in the temples of India.

Temples that have,

The Sun’s rays falling on the Idol in the Sanctum at a particular day

At a particular time,

Idols that change in color five times a day

Idol that changes color once in Fourteen days in coordination with the New and Full Moon,

Pillars that produce the seven basic notes of Classical Carnatic Music,

Vishnu idol looks as Vishnu but the back looks like a young woman,

Idols that are of minimum twelve feet in height,

Sculpture, where if\nI you drop a pin in the Bow of the sculpture falls to the ground,

Thanjavur Big temple where Twenty ton Nandi is found,

The top kalasam at the top of this temple’s Vimana is about 80 tons,

Konark Sun temple

…….

……… .

You may find articles on each of these temples in this site.

One must remember that the Thanjavur temple was built around 1010 AD and one wonders how they moved a Kalasa of such size and weight up the temple tower,

And there are no rocks nearby and the temple is built with rocks!

I will be writing exclusively on the architecture of Temples in India, Temple wise.

The temples built by the Hoysalas were in no way lagging behind.

The Hoysaleswara temple built by Vishnuvardhana , in Hampi around 12th century AD.

Will write in detail later.

Now let us look at the pillars in the temple.

The surface is smooth and one can find grooves indicating drilling having been used in Twelfth century.

Pillar Hoysaleswara Temple, Micro drilling Technology?

Not only this.

One finds a Gear sculpture made in the exact ratio we use now!

Polished Pillars with minute grooves, Hoysaleswara Temple Sanctum

I had written on Micro drilling technology in Mahabalipuram temple in Tamil Nadu.

We have Ajanta caves in Maharashtra where the technology used in building these temples in caves makes one suspect Alien technology!

Shall write on Ajanta, UFO base!

Sraddha Snake Last Rites Details Kukke Subrahmanya for Welfare Disease Relief

So in Sarpasamskara, the last Rites are performed for the snake if it is dead and if it is injured, a prathima or an idol is placed in the moolasthana of Subrahmanya.

Sarpasamskara has the following.


If one comes across problems in life, it is natural to look for solutions, which may not, in my opinion need not, stand to reason.

The popularity of some practices belong to this.

When one finds himself/herself in deep trouble or concerned with some issues, which can not be solved by normal means, one seeks things that are beyond normal.

These are the vows taken by people despite their religious leanings, Caste, creed.

This applies to the Rationalists (?),as well, who resort to these practices on the sly.

A Temple which is famous for solving problems relating to,

Childless people,

Health,

Eyesight,

Nervous debility,

Depression,

Ear disorders,

Life threatening diseases, and

Skin diseases.

Apart from this this temple is known for absolving one of the curse dosha that accrues because of killing Snake, Sarpa Dosha.

It is believed that performing Sarpasamskara, meaning the last Rites for Snake, is an atonement for having killed a snake intentionally or otherwise.

(leave alone the absolving one of sin, but look at the Humane consideration for a reptile by the Hindus. I may note here that Hindus Shanti Mantra places the welfare of the plant life first and places the welfare of humans later.. ‘Urdhvam jigadhu beshajam, sanno asthu dwipadey sanchatushpathe’ may water spread from roots to the top, may the two legged be happy, may the four legged be happy’)

The harmed snake is either dead or injured.

So in Sarpasamskara, the last Rites are performed for the snake if it is dead and if it is injured, a prathima or an idol is placed in the moolasthana of Subrahmanya.

Sarpasamskara has the following.

The final Rites are performed including ten days tharpanam, Apa Thapa Upasamanam , that is the satisfying of incomplete cravings of the snake and the fulfilled yet sought after objects, as one would for a human.

For last Rites of humans please read my articles.

And Homa is performed and the snake’s body in the form of a representation is consigned to the flames of the Homa.

As in Vedic Rites Pindapradhana is performed with eight rice balls.

As in humans, the pindas are mixed and promoted to higher lokas.

Then sixty four dhanas, gifts are distributed including Cow, food for Brahmins.

As this is the last rite and as such is not an auspicious occasion.

Hence one is asked to take bath after the Homa.

I may note here that one should eat once and go without dinner the day preceding the Sarpasamskara, as one would do for one’s ancestor’s annual ceremony or Sraddha.

One can take food on the day of Sarpasamskara after the Homa at the temple and can take only lite refreshments in the night.

No onion, Garlic, non vegetarian.

The next day one visits the temple for Sarpa pratishta in the temple where the image, idol is kept in moolasthana room.

Nineth Century Chola Temple Bethuru Davangere Karnataka

Now I find there is a Temple for Shiva in Bethuru, four kilometres from Davangere, Karnataka, on the way to Jagalur.

The temple is reported to have been built in the Eighth Century AD.


As one reads Indian history one is amazed at the antiquity of India and its rich culture.

The problem is that many are not aware of these facts thanks to Invaders and the manipulated History of India by them, who never seem to date anything about India before Christ and the self-styled left historians(?) of India, who have no time to check Indian sources and archaeological sites, but would accept a history of India by James Stuart Mill was by Rajaraja Chola. \nNow I find there is a Temple for Shiva in Bethuru, four kilometres from Davangere, Karnataka, on the way to Jagalur. \nThe temple is reported to have been built in the Eighth Century AD. from England, without visiting India!

I have listed the Chola temples in Bangalore with the earliest being dated at 1035 AD.

It was by Rajaraja Chola.

Now I find there is a Temple for Shiva in Bethuru, four kilometres from Davangere, Karnataka, on the way to Jagalur.

The temple is reported to have been built in the Eighth Century AD.

However on checking up, it transpires that Vijayalaya Chola built this.

Vijayalaya Chola was a king of South India Thanjavur( 850 870 CE) and founded the imperial Chola Empire.[1] He ruled over the region to the north of the river Kaveri.'(Wikipedia)

Not surprising.

This temple was built by the Cholas between the 8th and 9th centuries, post the weakening of the Badami Chalukyas and before the rise of Rashtrakutas. Later in the 11th century, this temple under went a few additions under the Kalyana Chalukyas. Many hero-stones found here which are now kept near the temple belong to the Kalyana Chalukyas. The most pleasing sight here is that of a beautiful carving on the ceiling panel of ‘Gajasura Samara/ Gajasurasamhara’ (depiction of Lord Shiva slaying the elephant demon Gajasura) in the central portion, surrounded by the Ashtadikapalas. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva in the form of a Linga, with murtis of goddesses Saraswathi and Sapthamatrikas and Lord Subramanya kept in the Navaranga of the temple. The Shikara of the temple is a perfect example of early Cholan architecture. This temple definitely needs and deserves more care and maintenance in order to be preserved for future generations.

Chola Temples Bangalore List 1035 AD

I have often stressed the fact that though there were fifty six kingdoms in India from ancient times, though there were wars between various kings, the culture was so advanced the Conquerors built temples, tanks and roads in the kingdom which they have won.

People were not harassed as a general rule though there are exceptions as in the case of Vatapi, now in Karnataka, which was burnt down Narasimha Varma Pallava in his war against Pulikesin1 .

However the King’s of Tamil Nadu built temples and tanks in Karnataka.

The Hoysalas built temples in Tamil Nadu and Hoysala architecture had left an impression in Tamil Nadu Architecture.

Will be writing on this.

Bangalore Was Vengalur Madivala Chola Inscription

This temple was built by Rajaraja Cholas who built the Thanjavur Big Temple, an architectural marvel, in Tamil Nadu.

The inscription also mentions the name of Bangalore as Vengalur .


Bangalore, now called as Bengaluru, the IT capital of India is older than what many believe it to be.

The common assumption is that it was founded by Kempegowda in the *16th Century.

Chola Inscription Bangalore. Image.
Chola Inscription on the outerwall of Someswara temple at Madivala, Bangalore

It is the name of a village near kodegehalli and was copied by Kempegowda to the city of Bangalore. Bangalore was built on a venue earlier called as Shivanasamudram in the 16th century.(wiki Bangalore Etymology).

Considering the history of India and that of the kings of South India, Cheras, Cholas, Pandy as, Hoysalas , Satavahanas and Gangas, Bangalore should be much older.

And considering Ramayana which states that Rishyasrunga, husband of Rama’s sister lived in Sringeri, Karnataka, this conviction about the antiquity of Karnataka and Kannada the Brahmi script of which is a million year old.

Please read my articles on these.

There are many ancient temples in Bangalore.

The Kadu Malleswaram Temple is about 7000 years old.

Please check my article on this.

Now evidence has surfaced in the Form of Epigraphy in A Temple in Bangalore.

And this is dated around 1297AD.

Not only this.

This temple was built by Rajaraja Cholas who built the Thanjavur Big Temple, an architectural marvel, in Tamil Nadu.

The inscription also mentions the name of Bangalore as Vengalur .

The report.

Bangalore came into existence in 1527 (founded by Kempegowda) but the name is older than the city. One of the earliest and the only known records that talks about Bengaluru is a veeragallu (hero stone) in Begur village — which proves that there existed a place called Bengaluru in the 9th Century.

Members of Inscription Stones of Bangalore, a team of history/heritage researchers, who have done a reality check on the surviving hero stones and inscriptions, stumbled upon the Madivala inscription and dug into the Epigraphia Carnatica to decipher the writing. “The Madivala Someshwara temple outer wall is filled with writings and Vengalur is mentioned at the bottom. It talks about land grants made by the rulers. This temple is just about 6 km from Begur and since there is a mention of Veppur (now Begur) in the inscription, it adds all the more credence to the city’s name. This inscription is also recorded in the Epigraphia Carnatica,’’
says Arun Bharadwaj, a member of the Inscription Stones of Bangalore.

The Epigraphia Carnatica has recorded the inscription as: Someshware temple at Madivala is one of Bangalore’s oldest, dating back to the Chola period. There are a number of Tamil and Grantha inscriptions on the outer walls of the temple. The oldest of these inscriptions dates to 1247 AD that talks about land grants “below the big tank of Vengalur” by a Veppur (modern Begur) resident. Other inscriptions also talk about other land grants including those done during the reigns of Ballala III and Rajendra Chola.

Perfect Sri Chakra By Adi Shankaracharya Sringeri

1.Gods/Goddesses.

2.Sounds in the form of Mantras 

3.Geometrical shapes and

4.Combination of Sound and Geometrical shapes,Mantra and Yantra,which form Tantra.

One of the most effective Yantra is Sri Chakra of Devi.

For details of Sri Chakra,google sri yantra+ramanan50.

Sri Chakra and OM are interchangeable.


The Sri Chakra of Devi is perfect synchoronization of Universal Reality and the Individual Soul.

The Advaita system propounded Adi Shankaracharya,based on the Mahavakyas of the Vedas define Reality as Brahman .

It is is beyond Attributes.

It is beyond senses and a Noumenon.

It is Absolute with no reference to relate to.

The Individual Soul,Jiva is but a part of Brahman.

It is not separate,different from Brahman.

The individual soul,the world of Names and Forms are illusory in the sense that they are Relative.

The Individual Soul and the world of Names and Forms is because of Illusion.

This Illusion,at the Individual level is Avidya,Nescience,absence of Absolute Knowledge or loosely put Ignorance.

At the Universal level it is,Called Maya.
The Reality ,Brahman is the emobodiment of Being,Consciousness and Bliss.

SAT,CHIT,ANANDA.

Once ignorance,Avidya is removed the false ,Relative knowledge gives way to Absolute Knowledge,Brahma Gnana,when the Individual soul becomes aware of its original state,that of Reality,Brahman.

This,in short,is Advaita.

As it is impossible for the human mind to concentrate on mere principles,Hinduism,as a first step,recommends Personal God.

To facilitate the process of integrating the Universal Soul with the Individual soul,four tools are suggested.

1.Gods/Goddesses.

2.Sounds in the form of Mantras

3.Geometrical shapes and

4.Combination of Sound and Geometrical shapes,Mantra and Yantra,which form Tantra.

One of the most effective Yantra is Sri Chakra of Devi.

For details of Sri Chakra,google sri yantra+ramanan50.

Sri Chakra and OM are interchangeable.

Adi Shankaracharya established Sri Chakra invmany places,including Kolluru and Sringeri.

The perfect Sri Chakra can be found at Sringeri,the Mutt established by Adi Shankaracharya.

The ancient temple of Sri Sharada, the presiding deity of Sringeri has a glorious history that begins with the setting up of the Dakshinamnaya Peetham by Sri Shankara Bhagavatpada. Originally it was an unpretentious shrine with the Murti of Sharada made of sandalwood, installed over the Sri Chakra that Sri Adi Shankara carved on a rock. Subsequently Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha and Sri Vidyaranya had a temple built in the Kerala style, with timber and tiled roof. Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha substituted the sandalwood idol with the present golden idol.

Sri Sacchidananda Shivabhinava Nrisimha Bharati raised the present structure in granite with polished granite walling round the sanctum and Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati consecrated the new temple in May 1916. Sri Abhinava Vidyatirtha made several improvements in the temple. The Mahamandapam has huge stone pillars exquisitely carved with deities like Durga, Raja Rajeshwari, Dwarapalakas and Devis which are all sculpted according to the Shilpa Sastras practised in Tamilnadu.

Sanctified by the worship of an unbroken succession of Acharyas of the highest purity, loftiest devotion and unsurpassed mantric powers, the Murti of Sri Sharada radiates grace and blessings.’

Whitefield Kadugodi Bangalore Built By Chola 1043

Also the ‘KaShivishwanatha Temple (Built in the period of Cholas Dynasty) recently it has been re constructed. 2. Sree RamanjanEya temple (one of the oldest temple) 3. Shiva temple (another Oldest temple)’

Cholas Dynasty’s Inscriptions dating from 1043AD exists in Kadugodi, from the period of Rajendra Chola I, which describes the construction of the Pattanduru Lake, and Ganesh, Durga and Kshetrapaala temples by Chola chieftain Raja Raja Velan son of Permadi Gavunda.


History of Bangalore is quite old.

General conception i that Kempe Gowda established Bangalore around 1537 CE.

‘A succession of South Indian dynasties, the Western Gangas, the Cholas and the Hoysalas, ruled the present region of Bangalore until in 1537 CE, Kempé Gowdā – a feudal ruler under the Vijayanagara Empire – established a mud fort considered to be the foundation of modern Bangalore.’

Yet we find a 7000 year old Temple in Malleshwaram and another Someshwara Temple in Madivala,Bangalore.

Bangalore, hence, must be older than what is believed.

The Western Ganga Dynasty, called Mel(west) Gangar find reference in Tamil literature  of the period of Rajaraja Chola, who built the Thanjavur Big Temple in Tamil Nadu and Rajendra Chola, his son who built the Gangai Konda Cholapuram, Tamil Nadu.

Western Ganga dynasty ruled Karnataka and  lasted from about 350 to 1000 AD.

Later came the Cholas and Hoysalas.

However my research indicates Karnataka  to be much older, considering that Lord Rama’s brother in Law Rishyasrunga lived in Sringeri.

And there are references to Karnataka region in ancient Tamil literature.

I shall be writing on this shortly.

While going through Indian History from Indian sources, including the Purana and Tamil Literature( I unfortunately know only Tamil and Sanskrit;wish I have learnt more Indian languages), a curious fact emerges.

Though King fought for supremacy with each other, common people remained close together, except during wars.

There were marriages between people regions belonging to different regions.

The Kings to married from other dynasties.

Rajendra helped his nephew Rajaraja defeat Vijayaditya. His armies defeated Vijayadiya in Vengi and Jayasimha in the battle of Maski.

The village Kadugodi, Whitefield was built during the period of Rajendra Chola.

‘Kadugodi (ಕಾಡುಗೋಡಿ IPA: [Kāḍugōḍi]), known as Kadugudi was founded by the great Cholas Dynasty. It is located in Whitefield, Bangalore in the state of Karnataka. Kadugodi comes from “kadu” & “Gudi” meaning “temple in a forest” in Kannada.’

Also the  ‘KaShivishwanatha Temple (Built in the period of Cholas Dynasty) recently it has been re constructed. 2. Sree RamanjanEya temple (one of the oldest temple) 3. Shiva temple (another Oldest temple)’

Cholas Dynasty’s Inscriptions dating from 1043AD exists in Kadugodi, from the period of Rajendra Chola I, which describes the construction of the Pattanduru Lake, and Ganesh, Durga and Kshetrapaala temples by Chola chieftain Raja Raja Velan son of Permadi Gavunda.
