LORD VIRUPAKSHA OF HAMPI

Ladies Bath forming a part of the palatial mansion comes first, and the Simhasana next with the carvings of elephants, dancing girls and many awe-some scenes from the epic Ramayana. The Hazara Rama temple, Krishna Deva Raya's gift to the theist world, and the gem of a contribution to the sculptural world lies to the north. Each stone tells a tale and enters into dialogue, if you just wake it up by striking it a little hard. A miss not Kalakshetra, and the time spent here is an investment that fetches constant interest till memory lasts its power. Next to it lies the Antahpura - the ladies apartment, and next to that is located huge elephant stables. Proceeded a little further north, one is stupified at the gigantic monolithic statue of Narasimha with a canopy of seshanaga. Next comes the Krishnaswamy temple another invaluable gift to the nation by that immortal Andhra Bhoja. A visit-worthy shrine of prime necessity. Ganesh temple is situated to its north. There begins next a group of Jain temples, a standing proof of the religious tolerance of the enlightened rulers of the Vijayanagara empire.
