The northern part of Karnataka is one of the richest areas of lndia in monuments of great artistic value. It was subjected to the rule of several royal families, CaLukyas of Kalya?a, Ka?acuris and Senas in the tenth to thirteenth centuries CE which has been a period of great cultural refinement. It was the time of the greatest expansion of the Kalamukha-Lakulasaiva movements, and of the rise of Virasaivism.The temple of Muktesvara at Cau?adanapura (Dharwar district) is a beautiful representative of the style and the high culture of that time. Its history is known to us, thanks to a set of seven long inscriptions, composed in literary medieval Kannada, engraved with great care on large steles. It is a single cella temple in what is popularly known as Jakka?acari style. The present study contains a historical introduction, the complete edition, translation and interpretation of the inscriptions, an architectural description, with a graphic survey and an iconographical analysis.Printed Pages: 206.
