LEPAKSHI

Moreover, it has many plus points that won laurels and became responsible for an unending influx of art lovers and asthikas it is here that one can find true specimens of Vijayanagara style of architectural and sculptural art occupying an enviable niche in the temple history of our Punya Bharat; it is here found the colossal image of monolithic Nandi, the largest of its kind in India; it is here Lord Siva, under the name of Papanaseswara is worshipped, and the place counted as one among the famous 108 Sivakshetras, according to, Skandapurana; it is here found a hanging pillar called Antariksha Stambha - a rare specimen of architectural marvel, nowhere to be seen in India; it is this temple containing a rare combination of four holiest of deities - Sri rama, Veerabhadra, Durga and Papaneswara in one place; it is this place that serves as a treasure-troves possessing several inimitable paneled walls adorned with unique sculptural pieces and mural paintings of highest excellence, tempting emulation, but rarely one succeeds in making fakes even, so a veritable museum for sculptors, painters, art-lovers together with theists; it is this kshetra that set limits to the loyalty; it is this temple that teaches many morals through its bas-reliefs; it is this kshetra called by Papanaseswara kshetara and Kurmasila kshetra in Puranas; it is this shrine embodying on stone, many Sivalilas along with several representations of dance poses etc. Though not boasts of the instances of visitation by celestials and Pravaktas, for shere sculptural marvels, it is a haven. So sacred and visit worthy by one and all.
