STONE CHAROIT IN HAMPI Nov 12, 2013
The Stone Chariot at the Vijaya Vittala temple has to be one of everyone’s favorites, certainly is mine. The beautiful construct is a wonder of architecture in itself. In the Vittala Temple Complex is a shrine built in the form of temple chariot. An image of Garuda was originally enshrined within its sanctum. Garuda, according to the Hindu mythology, is the vehicle of lord Vishnu. It is also a symbol of Karnataka Tourism. This time when I went I saw floodlights have been installed in the temple complex that provide illumination at dusk, thereby adding to the scenic beauty of the architecture.

its world Heritage.

Ugra Narsimha Statue careved out of One Rock Nov 14, 2013
Narasimha in his deadly form, this one is a huge Ugra Narasimha, a statue of 6.7 meter height in the south region of the temple complex of Hemkuta group which contains the Virupaksha Temple. Narasimha, being half-man and half-lion, is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. This gigantic statue is worth seeing. One of the most enchanting things about this statue is that it’s carved out of one rock, hence it’s part of my top favorites in Hampi.Now this is certainly fascinating, if not in today’s day and age, certainly in the times of the Vijayanagra Empire. This unique architecture is a fascinating modern art haven and scientifically very interesting to explore
