Temples of Bhatkal

We found the 16th century temples of Bhatkal rather serendipitously.  We were driving from Udipi to Murudeshwar and wanted to stop at Bhatkal on the way to see some ancient mosques and other heritage sites. quite accidentally we saw the Jattappa Chandranath basadi on the way. This was being restored by ASI. The junior staff of ASI were very helpful and above all enthusiastic about the heritage. They guided us to the other temples too

 ASI is in the process of restoring these temples. It must be an uphill task as they are in very bad condition. Some of them are inside private property where modern houses have come up.
