Hazara Rama Temple

An important shrine and a hindu temple, this is located right in the middle of the royal omplex in Hampi. This temple was once the private temple of the Vijayanagara rulers and the others following them. The temple is now in ruins but the bas and the relics here still look beautiful. These are the specialties of the temple and on them are depicted the whole story of the epic Ramayana. The temple was built during the 15th Century during the rule of the Vijayanagara Ruler Devaraya II and initially had nothing but a single mandap. Later all the pillars and designed structures were added to make this temple look more beautiful. The name Hazara Rama came from the fact that there are a large number of idols and structures of the deity here. Also there are relics of royal scenes, horses, elephants and other royal animals. Surrounding this temple is a sprawling lawn which is a popular spot of tourists especially during the afternoon.

HAZARA RAMA templeAfter passing through the temples and bazaars and actually feeling the culture of the lost Vijayanagara empire, we now rode towards the Royal Enclosure – which is said to be spread over 59000 sq meters with palaces, temples, royal halls, ponds and other monuments included.The first one on the route was the Hazara Rama temple. As the name indicates, the temple is dedicated to Lord Rama. The exterior walls of the temple have carvings of the scene when the warriors return from a successful war – thus showing the entire city welcoming the warriors with festivities and celebrations! The inside walls show the entire story of Ramayana! The temple was built in the early part of the 15th century.

The name HazaraRam Temple says the thousand carvings of Lord Rama. This temple is adorned with the carvings of Ramayana. Each nook and cranny of this temple is an architectural marvel. This temple was of private use of the royals. The temple has a separate lawn.One noticeable architecture is steps going to no-where. Why no-where because, the rest of the architecture might have been broken or vandalized or this might have been the pedestal to have a watch all over the area. Kind off a Watch tower (Watch Steps) to be precise.
