Hosaholalu is a beautiful hamlet in the Mandya district of Karnataka. The star attraction of this place is the Lakshminarayana Temple, which was built in 1250 during the reign of the Hoysala rulers. Constructed by Vira Someshwara, a Hoysala king, the presiding Hindu deities of this shrine are Lakshminarayana, Venu Gopala and Lakshmi Narasimha.

Built using soapstone, this temple stands on a platform and features intricately sculpted friezes on its walls. There are six horizontal mouldings around the shrine, connoting legendary stories from Hindu mythologies. Its walls and ceilings are decorated with 120 exquisite images, out of which 24 pictures are depictions of Lord Vishnu.

Inside the temple, there is a mandapa that has four polished pillars. These pillars divide the hall into nine equal compartments and ornamented ceiling sections. It is a fine example of trikuta vimana, which is a religious edifice having three shrines.
