RAMAVATAR KSHETRAS IN KARNATAKA

Chunchanakatta  - Kodandarama Devalaya

This is yet another sculptural marvel left by the illustrious Vijayanagara rulers and said to have been built by Chinna Venkatapathi Raya of Aravidu dynasty. It lies on the bank of Pavana Tungabhadra river at a height of nearly 60 feet from the ground level. When the river is in spate, during the rainy season, water enters the temple and inundates all the parts except the sanctum sanctorum, therein lies the temples glory. The walls and ceilings are elegantly adorned with adorable sculptural images. The granite icons of the archamurti Sri Rama flanked by Sita and Iakshmana are made of one single stone and they are extremely bewitching to the sight. 'though the bigots' hand razed the splendour, the charm of the deities is still beckoning for soulful veneration to that immortal progeny of the emperor or dasarath of Solar dynasty.

It lies in Humpi, 18 km off Hospet of Ballary district of Karnataka, accessible by bus from several parts.
