Waterfall

Belgaum, Karnataka, India

Sogal is a place in Belgaum district, Karnataka, India. The name of the place is ascribed to a sage, Sugola Muni, who is believed to have lived in the area, but one inscription speaks of "Sovala." Located on a hillside, Sogal has many temples, including the Someshwara temple, and is of great antiquarian interest. Local folklore states that tigers came to Sogal to listen to the religious teachings. Other legends include a nearby Kalyanmantapa (temple), now renovated, where the marriage of Shiva and Parvati is said to have taken place. There is an old statue of Panchanana Shiva and Parvati, Shiva with basinga and other traditional ornaments. There are Ashtadikpalakas (statues of gods) in this area, such as; Yama, Agni, Ishanya and Indra — and these artifacts are examples of the artistic accomplishments of the period
