LEPAKSHI

The mural paintings on the upper parts of walls and ceiling too are a class in themselves. They depict vividly several memorable episodes from our epics. The colour and size together with expressions cast a spell on the on-lookers, The Mukha mantapa in particular is adorned with the legends of Kiratarjuniya, Bhakta Siriala, Lord Krishna in several poses like Vatapatrasayi afford eyeful sights. Among the many, the story of Manuchola is quite outstanding. The episode of his verdict itself is quite gripping. It happened-the famous Chola King reputed for his dharma paripalana hung up a big bell to the palace entrance for the convenience of the victims to bring their plight to the notice of the King by ringing it. A just means for dispensing justice. A cow rang the bell one day at the death of its calf crushed by the wheels of the Chariot of Prince, galloping at high speed. Finding the accused was his son, he ordered him to undergo the same punishment to be run over by a chariot in full speed. He himself drove the Chariot.
