 I  have taken the above photograph  a few years ago  at Halebeedu temple, Karnataka,  its a beautiful temple, i am very much surprised by a carving , and above is the picture of that carving of a person, the person is wearing long coat(judge's coat), judge's wig, and a stick in his hand, and a hand cuff !!!!!!!!!

is it of a judge? 

but the temple is thousands of year old, and the Indian people were not used to wear coat at that time!

 Halebidu is located in Hassan district in Karnataka.


Ketumalla, the chief of staff of Hoysala Kingdom, built this temple during 1121 A.D and attributed to his king, Vishnuvardhana and queen, Shantala Devi. Even then it is learnt that it took 105 years to complete. If one stands on the platform of the temple and sees around he will see the hills opposite and two big bulls facing the temple and Ganesha figure on the south. 


It is believed that Queen Shantala Devi, was an epitome of beauty and fashion, she was also a great Bharatnatyam dancer and musician. Sculptors were inspired by this and the Shilabalikas, the dancing figures, are models of Queen Shantala Devi and her courtisans.historyof Hoysalas mentions Shantala Devi had great influence in the adminstration and religious reforms during Vishnuvardhana reign. She was follower of Jainism and the King follower of Sri Vaishnaism and was influenced by Saint Ramanuja Charya.


In the 14th century, this glorious city fell into ruins with the invasion of Malik Kafur, Mughuls, from the North India This place was ran-sacked and plundered repeatedly rendering it in ruins. Hence its name Haledid, meaning " City in Ruins".
