It is said that Barkur was earlier divided into a number of keris, each having a tank and multiple temples. At one point, there were as many as 365 temples here. However, today, what remains of them are just ruins. Most temples that are functional here are dedicated to Lord Ganesha. With sloping terracotta-laden roofs lending them a distinct rustic charm, most of these temples date between the ninth and 12th centuries. Students were happy to see each sculpture with its uniqueness and wondered how it is so cool inside the temple even though it is so sunny outside. We also visited the historic place Katthale Basadi believed to be built during the Pandya (Bhuthala Pandya) rule. In one of the basadis, there is believed to be a tunnel.

The structure dates back to the Vijayanagar empire. Several parts of the basadi have collapsed but still look amazing.
