Hulikere was a suburb of Dorasamudra (Halebidu), the erstwhile capital of the Hoysalas. The earliest inscription found at this place belongs to the reign of Hoysala Narasimha I (1152-1173 AD). His official, by name Lattayya, built a temple called Bhuvana-bhushana Lattesvara and an ornate Kalyani in 1160 AD at this place. Although no remains of Siva temple are seen in the vicinity, the tank still exists in all its splendour. This unique Kalyani built in stepped order leading to the water source has three prominent landings accommodating as many as twenty-seven ornate miniature shrines some carrying superstructure while others are devoid of it. Most probably the shrines might have been dedicated to twenty seven nakshtras.
