Someshwara Temple Ulsoor history:

Benjamin Lewis Rice describes a legend behind the temple consecration in the "Gazetter of Mysore" (1887).Kempe Gowda rode a long way from his capital, Yelahanka, while on a hunt.He lay down under a tree, being tired, and falling asleep.He was seen in a dream by the local deity Someshwara, who advised him to construct a temple in his honor using buried treasure.The chief would obtain divine favor in exchange. Kempe Gowda discovered the treasure and finished the Ulsoor Shiva temple with devotion.

Someshwara Temple Ulsoor Plan:
The sanctum is linked to a closed mantapa (hall) whose walls are adorned in frieze with pilasters and carvings. The closed mantapa is linked to a spacious open mantapa consisting of four big "bays" (four-pillar region) projecting.The normal Yali (mythical beast) pillars are the piers leading to the sanctum and those facing out from the open mantapa. The eastern gopuram is a typical structure of the 16th century that is well performed.

The complex contains several noteworthy sculptures and ornamental characteristics. An impressive pillar (kambha or nandi) above the entrance door (gopura) stands close the high tower. The tower itself displays well-sculpted pictures of Hindu mythology deities and goddesses.
