Our next stop was at Yoga Lakshmi Narasimha temple-the God of destroying Evil! The giant monolithic statue of the man-lion god is the largest icon in Hampi. It’s believed that the original image contained his consort Lakshmi sitting on his lap. This image was destroyed during the enemy invasion. Currently only a hand of the goddess resting on his waist can be seen.#Closeby within the premises was Shiva Lingam temple.
If the Ganesha idol was impressive then the next idol that we visited just blew my mind. The idol is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, and the impressive idol sits with a hood of cobra on top of the head. Both the hands are broken, suggesting the damage inflicted during the rampage on Hampi. With the face of that of a lion the idol is sitting in a meditation posture. This sculpture was also given shape from single rock.
this will come on the way once you started and now all the Places connected. after riding up to some km. you will reach to.
By entering inside the enclosure, one can see the land of Lakshmi on Narasimha's back with her fingers, nails and rings, all beautifully sculptured. At present the idol of Goddess Lakshmi has been kept at Kamalapura Museum. However, the idol of Narasimha with bulging eyes and delineated mane still attracts a majority of tourists. The idols of Lord Narasimha and Goddess Lakshmi were carved out from a single boulder. Also known as the Ugra Narasimha, the original structure had his consort Lakshmi sitting on his lap. Now only the hand of Lakshmi can be seen attached to Narasimha at the back. The statue of Lakshmi was damaged during enemy invasion.
