History as per Internet
Veeranarayana temple was built during the Kalyani Chalukya times however it received continuous patronage till the Vijayanagara rulers. Kannada poet Kumara Vyasa composed his famous Mahabharatha (known as Kumaravyasa Bharata or Gadugina Bharata) in this temple.

It was around 3.45 pm and Kamat agreed to still serve Pav Bhaji although it was suppose to start at 4PM. After a hearty meal the last stop were famous temples in the city. Veeranarayana temple is just few minutes from the main market where Kamat was located.




This was a simple temple in quiet neighbourhood. After quick look we proceeded to the famous Trikuteshwar temple.
