It was a Sunday, a bit cloudy in Bangalore, I craved for sunshine or may be getting out of the house. I had my breakfast and hit the road, it took me 3 hours to reach Somanathpur, I was mesmerized by the temple architecture and felt like I have flown back in time.

Details about the temple and how it was built can be found here Somanathpura .
