Humpi - Vittala Devalaya

This shrine of Pandurapga is deemed by connoisseurs of art th2. best specimen of Vijayanagar style of architecture that brought undying fame to the rulers, as builders of eternal eminence: The positioning of neatly polished stone pillars one over the other is a standing example of architects' superb mastery. In addition, it contains the famous seven well sculptured pillars, each emitting only one distinct sound, when tapped with a stone. They produce Saptaswaras the basic sounds SA, RI, GA , MA, PA, DA, Nl, SA of musicology, which is an eternal fascination for visitation. No visitor leaves the hall without applying his hand to them. Besides, the wall panels and the broad sturdy stone pillars, adorned with exquisite carvings narrate many aw(i inspiring pouranic episodes. Among the figures of animal and bird kingdoms, the swan holding gracefully the lotus roots affords an elevating experience. The Kalyana mandap lying just opposite the Mahadwara is said to have been built by Krishna Devaraya. He beautified it with some additions and they are worthy of seeing. It captivates the visitors even it is in dilapidated condition. That is its uniqueness. Though the Mlechcha expansionists marred them to ,pieces, each fragment is narrating a tale awe-some and glory indefinable.

It lies in Humpi, 18 km off Hospet of Ballary district of Karnataka and commanding transport facilities.
