Chalukya temples[edit]

Jalasangvi is a historical place, built by king Vikramaditya VI of the Chalukya dynasty. There is a big pond in the village area, close to which there are some Chalukya temples in various states of ruin.

The Kamalishvara Temple is famous for its outstanding Salabhanjika or Madanika sculptures. These well-endowed feminine figures in seductive tribhanga poses are "...moon breasted, swan-waisted and elephant-hipped", according to the traditional Indian artistic canons. The sculptures of the Jalasangvi temple were the source of inspiration for the later Hoysala bracket-figures of Belur, Halebidu and Somanathapura.[1] This Chalukya temple is built on a star-shaped plan.[2]
