LORD VIRUPAKSHA OF HAMPI

On the way to the Matanga Parvatha, about a kilometer off, there is found a monolithic bull, the mount of the Lord of Kailas. To the north-east, at about a kilometer's distance is situated the Chakra Thirtha, adjoining the Rishyamuka hills. A small cave lies beside the Sita Sarovar, supposed to be the spot where the jewels of Mother Sita fell, when thrown from the Vimana. From here at a distance of 6 KM to the east of Virupaksha temple is located a hill called now Malyavanaparvatha considered to be identical with Prasravanagiri, where Sri Rama stayed for a long period of 4 months along with Lakshman after coronation of Sugriva.

Anegundi deemed identical with Kishkinda by historians is situated on the northern bank of river Tungabhadra and it is about 5 km off to the temple. The famous Pampa Sarovara lies about 3 km away to the Kishkinda and Anjani Hill, the sacred birth place Hanuman's lies to its north-west and it is visit worthy. Another important place of visit is the birth of place of Sabari lying too far away, say about 100 km, but before devotion the distance dwindles.
