Sringeri Temple is one of the oldest and beautiful temples in south India. Its exterior and interior architecture of the temple is outstanding and this was carved by best skilled workers, who were from some of the most poorest families. The most unfortunate thing is that the stone carving skills has reduced in last few decades and if this continues, it will be permanently vanished
