The origin of the Hoysalas is a matter of much interesting speculation and controversy. Like their distinguished contemporaries, the Seunas, the Hoysalas too claim their descent from Yadu (Lunar Dynasty) and call themselves the Yadavas. The conventional titles like, "Yadavanarayana", "Yadavakutambrad-yumani" and "Dvaravatipura-varadhisvara" are common to both the Seunas and the Hoysalas. These details are compiled from internet and by various sources by the Blogger over the years.

Lakshmi-Narayana Temple, Adagooru, Belur Taluk Hassan District.

This is a village 8 Km from Halebeedu towards Hassan city. A Lakshmi-Narayana Temple exists here, but the deity is known by the name Vadaga Narayana. This is a Trikootachala, Lakshmi-Narayana idol being in one of them and a Sarswathi in another. Though there is a Venugopal idol in the other Sanctum, it is very unlikely to have been the original idol. The navaranga is attractive. There are no wall sculptures on the outside. A beautiful pinnacle looks elegant on the top.
