LEPAKSHI

Apart from the huge monolithic Nandi which is the largest sculpture of Nandi in India, Lepakshi is famous for its exquisite Vijayanagar style of sculpture which is found in the Natyamantapa and the Kalyanamantapam as well as from the mural paintings that are found in the upper part of these walls. These sculptures depict a number of Puranic legends and epics and a study of the temple sculptures is an education by itself in the Puranas as well as in the legends.

There are excellent sculptures of Ananthasayana, life size figures of Virupanna and images of Dattatreya, Chaturmukha Brahma, Tumburu, Narada and Rambha in the Rangamantapa. The musical instruments, costumes, the gestures and the ornaments of the Gods have been delineated here with great accuracy. Especially beautiful are the sculptures of Annapoorna, Mrutyunjaya and Padmini.
