Known as the temple-architecture capital of Karnataka, Hassan is located 187 km from Bangalore. Hassan derives its name from the presiding deity Goddess Hassanamba which in Kanada language mean 'Smiling mother'. Hassan saw its development as a major seat of Hoysala Empire that ruled major parts of South India. An example of the ancient glory of Hassan is the Shettyhalli Church which was built in the 18th century. In Mosale, Nageshwara and Channakeshava reflect the Hoysala architecture of the 12th century.
Hassan is mainly popular for its Jain Temples and the Hassanamba Temple. But apart from this, the city has a very well connected transport system. Hence making this the point to many other tourist hubs in Karnataka. Hassan is close to Belur and Halebid, Coorg and is just 100 km away from here too.
