Photograph of the Panchalingheshvara temple at Manoli in Karnataka taken by James Burgess around 1874. In the village of Manoli there are some medieval temples which were built around AD 1200 during the Hoysala rule. The Panchalingheshvara temple is one of the two larger ones. The temple takes its name from the five lingas found in the sanctuary. It comprises a sanctuary with a closed hall and an open hall. The open hall has short circular pillars standing on the parapet-wall and full-length bell circular pillars in the middle. It has a sloping roof. Above the frontal entrance there is the Hoysala-crest, a sculpture which represents a warrior stabbing a lion.
