Belur is situated around 38 km from Hassan. The Channekeshava Temple at Belur is one of the three major Hoysala sites still in use. The construction of this temple started in 1116 AD to commemorate the victory of the Hoysalas over the Cholas at Talakad.

It took around hundred years to complete the work. It is said that every Hindu deity has been represented at this temple. Guides can be hired to explain the detailed sculptural work. Other Hoysala temples at Belur are the Chennigaraya and the Viranarayana.
