A wondrous structure in Hulikere 26.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The ornate temples of Belur and Halebidu in Hassan district that attract lakhs of travellers from across the world are considered to be the best examples of Hoysala style of temple architecture. The district has many more Hoysala structures that can be of interest to art aficionados. Interestingly, many of them are unknown to people and remain off the tourist circuit. One such place is Hulikere Kalyani, situated two kilometres away from Halebidu on the Hagare road. Hulikere (huli translates to tiger and kere translates to pond in Kannada) village was part of Dwarasamudra (now Halebidu), the erstwhile capital of the Hoysala rulers. The water tank located here is considered to be a milestone in the construction of kalyanis. Unfortunately, there is no proper connectivity to the place and the road is narrow. Though there is a signboard it can be easily missed. The elaborate kalyani has three levels with 30 steps. One can see an amalgamation of astronomy and architecture in this kalyani. At ...

Pressure on us not to restore Vasanthpura tank, say officials 25.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Muzrai officials, who had announced that the 350-year-old Vasanthpura Kalyani off Kanakapura Road would be developed according to the 100-year-old village map, have now developed cold feet. The officials said there is tremendous pressure on them not to restore the tank to its earlier state. The Muzrai officials had almost levelled three-fourth of the Kalyani on the pretext of reviving it. The plan was to build a small tank of 22,000 sq ft and build a 40 ft road on the eastern side of the tank connecting the main road in the north to a private property in the south. The work stopped ever since DH broke the story about the Muzrai department's plan to cover the tank to benefit a realtor. The officials later said they will scrap the development plan and retain the actual water holding area of the tank. Now, the Muzrai officials want a hearing with Infosys Foundation chairperson Sudha Murty, who is funding the development project at an estimated cost of Rs 2.5 crore. Four days ago, Bengaluru rural MP D K ...
