SOME SHRINES SUPERB

MELKOTE

Among the famous Vaishnava kshetras the state of Karnataka proudly boasts of, Melkote occupies a pre-eminent place for reasons more than one. Credit for his goes first to the renowned Krishna temple, popularly known as Challapilarya Sampathkumaralaya, the nucleus of spiritual activity and around which many a historic event took place. Another shrine dedicated to Lord Narisimha has been playing an eqully important, rather a pivotal role in giving a boost to this mokashadham of universal attraction. It Was here that redoubtable Vaishnavamata savakta Ramanujacharya lived fur 14 long years and did yeoman service to temple traditions. It was then, he initiated Hoyasala Vishnuvardhanan into Hinduism, and from that moment only spectacular achievements in the realm of sculpture started. his long stay though was brought out by the unworthy persecution of his immature rivals, it culminated in giving immortality to that religious town. It has a fantastic story.
