  1. I have visited this temple at Devanhalli. This is a very small temple located just at the entrance of fort. Its said to be a fort, but looks like mmost of the walls is in shambles now. But temple is very old and is a protected monument. Not very well maintained, but does has a hsitorical importance. Shoud be maintained well .. There are few other temples and places of historical importance in and around Devanhalli. Can be covered in a day.
