VIJAYANAGAR - PAMPATTI AALAYAM

The Temple Complex

Adjacent to the Jain Aalayas lies the imposing shrine dedicated to Lord Virupaksha, whose invisible presence gave an inexhaustible sustenance to the empire throughout. It has a massive prakara pierced by tall towers, the eastern eleven-storied majestic gopuram is the tallest and goes by the name of Galigopuram; for, it actually touches the Vayumandala, penetrating through the stately clouds. The sculptural marvels adorning the ceiling and walls detain both the laymen and connoisseurs alike for hours, if their aesthetic impulses are in sound condition. Here vastness and awe-inspiring hallowed splendor greet the eyes and feast the soul with sublimity. No wonder, its sanctity has been luring an unending influx of devotees since its inception in the dim past, prior even to the establishment of Vijayanagar empire to be precise, and so occupying the pride of place among the centuries-old temples of our Punya Bharat. The Sivalinga is quite imposing and its regality seems emerging from every inch of its architectural beauty. Ramaswamy Aalayam and Vijaya Vittalaswamy Aalayam lie on the holy bank in the north eastern direction. As each embodies Vijayanagara style of architecture and sculptural excellences, they enchant and bless the visitors munificently.

It lies near Hospet in Ballary district of Karnataka state enjoying road and railway facilities.
