A magnificent celebration of Indian culture and heritage, artists from all over the country, come to participate in Hoysala Mahotsava. While being among the architectural splendour of the temples, and watching divine classical performances, is something which you should not miss out on given a chance. The Hoysala Mahotsava embraces the new season with its mesmerising traditional dance forms, and other forms of art. The festival harbours old and young talent alike and welcomes a sense of awe in every onlooker's heart. The festival takes place in the temples of Belur Halebid in Karnataka and is holy and auspicious for Hindus. The honorary art forms are performed in honour of the King Hoysala, whose military genius and bravery are commemorated in the wall carvings of the temple. The hamlets surrounding the temple come alive during the festival with lights, decorations, and the festive spirit. After the traditional dances, a huge feast follows in the temple.
