LORD VIRUPAKSHA OF HAMPI

ANTIQUITY

Sacred puranas embody several accounts highlighting the holiness of this thirtha kshetra beginning with the penance of Pambadevi daughter of Brahma. It happened in the Kritayuga. The region with the majesty of its lofty boulders and high peaks over the long chain of hills with Tungabhadra flowing majestically amidst the ever green primeval forests had a special attraction for many celestials and ascetics for meditation. Its isolation and sequestered loveliness lured then Pampadevi, who desiring to be united with Visweswara in wedlock descended here for penance. Her ambition was fulfilled soon due to sublimity of the locality. Its prominence as sublime kshetra came to light again with Vali and Sugriva who ruled this region in the Tretayuga. The great epic Ramayana devotees several hundreds of pages about this place on or after Sri Rama's chance visit to this place, after the abduction of Mother Sita. Vali and Sugriva were brothers and the latter was the son of Surya.
