Sri Veerabhadra Swamy Temple
Shantigrama village is 12kms from Hassan town and adjacent to Bangalore-Hassan Highway. Among the five ancient temples in the village, Sri Veerabhadra Temple at Shantigrama is 800 years old and it is in Hoysala style of architecture. The temple was in total dilapidated condition due to the growth of wild vegetation and the outer walls were fallen down. The temple and the mahadwara was dismantled and re-built after strengthening the adhistana. After completely cleaning the existing stone members and substituting the new stone members in place of broken/missing stone members, restoration work was carried out. Suitable Shikara was built over Garbhagriha. Flooring inside and outside the temple was laid with stone slabs. The restoration work of the temple was done during 2012-13. Daily pooja is being performed after restoration.
