Keshava Temple (plan)
Somnathpur, Karnataka

Keshava temple was built in 1268 by the Hoysala general Somanatha, during the reign of king Narasimha III. This gem of a building is the last, and best-preserved, of the major Hoysala temples. The temple entrance faces east, and is framed by lathe-turned columns.

Keshava is one of the names of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita.
