LEPAKSHI

THE HISTORIC EVIDENCE

In the temple history of Dakshnapatha, the Vijayanagara Kingdom has carved out for itself an outstanding, multi-splendoured niche, which " the eye has not seen, nor the ear heard of such spectacular one anywhere in the world. Its glory touched the zenith during Krishna Devaraya's time. He was a Sahiti Samarangana Chakravarthi, and his patronage to plastic arts was second to none, but to himself. Many remarkable temples adorned with matchless sculptural marvels came into existence. Their glorious history, though in ruins is remaining as example of examples. Among the temples of great fame built during then, the Lepakshi temple has a conspicuous place. It stands as a specimen of Vijayanagara style of architecture, a byword for excellence.

Though he is not the builder, or the cause of its construction overtly or covertly, it is designed after the model he established and patronised , And what is more the entire cost was met from his State Revenue.
