The Ishvara Temple (also spelt Ishwara or Isvara) in Arasikere town of the Hassan district in Karnataka state, India, dates to c. 1220 CE rule of Hoysala Empire.Arasikere is located 140 km north of the historic city of Mysore and 41 km east of Hassan city.The temple, which is dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva, though modest in size and figure sculpture, is considered the most complex one in architecture among surviving Hoysala monuments because of its ground plan: a 16-pointed star shaped mantapa, in addition to an asymmetrical star shaped shrine, whose star points are of three different types.
