Khidrapur


It is to the east of Kolhapur, ancient & artistic on the bank of the Krishna. It was built in 11-12 century by Shilahar. ln the interior we first see Vishnu (Dhopeshwar) & Shivaling facing north. But there is no Nandi who has separate Mandir. Separate Actor-Pendal, hall, old pillars, carvings of gods & rnale-fernale artists in various poses are attractive. The ceiling is semi-circular with rnatchless engravings. On the out side, complete 'Shivaleelamrit' is carved.

When sati Parvati jumped into Daxa'.' sacrifice, Lord Shiva was angry. He got peace of rnind in this temple From entrance to Shivaling, we feel peace, coldness & Dark Shankaracharya had appointed servants for the management. In Shravan on Monday & Shivaratri the Mandir is crowded. The Palanquine celebration is simply spectacular!

The Kopeshwar, Ancient & artistic temple situated on the bank of Krishna is a fine example of ancient sculpture. It was built in 11-12 century by Shilahar. In the interior you see first Vishnu( Dhopeshwar) and Shivling facing north. But there is no nandi who has separate Mandir. Separate Actor-Pendal, hall, old pillars, carvings of gods & male-female artists in various poses are attractive. The ceiling is semi-circular with matchless engravings. On the outside complete 'Shivaleetamrit' is carved When sati Parvati jumped into Daxa's sacrifice, Lord Shiva was angry. He got peace of mind in this temple. From entrance to Shivaling, we feel peace, coldness and dark. In Shravan, on Monday & Shivratri the mandir is crowded. The palanquin celebration is simply spectacular!
