Photograph of the Tateshwara Temple near the Gokak Falls in Karnataka. The Tateshwara temple is a Siva temple on the south side of the falls. It faces north, an unusual orientation for temples dedicated to Siva. It has a sanctuary with a mandapa or hall. The outside walls of the closed hall were constructed more recently and were not part of the original structure.
 
The Gokak Falls, near Belgaum, are created by the Ghataprabha river which falls one hundred and seventy feet over a sandstone cliff in a horseshoe shape gorge.
