This is a debatable question, in India there are two Belur, one in West Bengal and other is at Karnataka. You meant by which Belur?
I furnish details of both.
Belur is a town on the west bank of the Hooghly River in the district of Howrah , West Bengal
Down river, on the other side of the Ganga, is Belur Math, the monastery founded by Swami Vivekananda, the world-renowned disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, which has become the world headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission

Belur, karnataka.
At a distance of about 220 Kms from the metro city of Bangalore,The Hoysala dynasty originally had their capital at Halebid (about 17 kms from Belur) where they ruled for over 150 years. However, it was attacked by invaders a couple of times during the 14th century, reducing the once grand capital to poverty and ruins. Thus, the Hoysalas shifted their seat of power to Belur which stood proud as a powerful empire back then.
Belur is considered as the Banaras of South and is thus also known as Daks ...more
