Siddarameshwara Temple




Siddarameshwara Temple lies in the Belagumba Village of Tumkur District. Built in the 15th century, the temple belonged to the rulers of Hoysala dynasty.

According to a legend, the idol of Lord Shiva in the Linga form was found among the rocks of the hill. Later, it was brought and installed in the present place by a Shaivaite saint. This idol was worshipped by Lord Ram, who was in search of Sita, and thus the temple got the name Sidda-Rama-Ishwara.

The front walls of the temple have beautiful murals of Lord Shiva and Saint Basaveshwara.
