Balakrishna Temple

Infront of the Krishna Temple Complex in Hampi, there was once a buzzing market evident from the structure of the buildings around. Circled with rocky structures and raised platforms this is where the central marketplace of the city used to be during the times of the ancient kings. This place is now just a place of loose, huge rocks and historic ruins.
Krishna Temple, this is the must see place in hampi. This temple built in 1513 A.D. by King Krishnadevraya to celebrate the victory of eastern kingdom of Utkala (present day - Orrisa state of India). On the walls of temple the story of temple and victory of utkala is carved very beautifully. The main tower at east is under restoration and its impressive sight. The architecture and carvings will make you to get lost back to 15th and 16th century. This temple is dedicated to Balakrishna(form of krishna itself) and this statue is in museum at chennai. Other small shrine are displayed for devotees. After wandering a lot we gulped coconut water, rested few min and again walked till Shri Chandikeshwara Temple.
