LEPAKSHI

Of the architectural wonders, the Natyamantap captivates the viewers with its exquite sculpture. The sculptured pillars bearing the life size representations of dancers, musicians, and dancing deities send thrills by their excellent finish, size, polish and gestures, but some parts and left unfinished, due to the unfortunate incident of the builder's meeting punishment by the ruler. The proportions of the statues and their gestures display the stone cutters' artistry and have brought a creditable merit to the Vijayanagara style of art; and they throw a halo round the builder's head too. The next object that draws the visitors to detain them longer is the huge monolithic Nandi. It is made out of a single rock and measures 20 feet in height and 30 in length. Neither any similar in size, nor parallel in craftsmanship is found any where in the whole of Bharat. Another feather to the builder.
