Ikkeri is situated in Shimoga District of "Karnataka State" at about 3 km to the South of Sagar. The word "Ikkeri" in Kannada means "Two Streets". This place was the capital of Keladi Nayakas for some years. The walls of the city were of great extent, forming three concentric enclosures. In the citadel was a palace built with mud and timber, adorned with carvings. Today what remains is the temple of "Aghoreshvara" (one of the several names of Lord Shiva), a large and well proportioned stone-building, constructed in a mixed style with a unique conception.
There are intricate carvings on the stone walls of the temple. There are carvings & sculptures such as Temple Relief (sculpture consisting of shapes carved on a surface so as to stand out from the surrounding background), Erotica, Fingurine, Old Kannada Manuscript, Sculpted Elephant etc.
