Virupaksha Temple

One of the oldest and largest in the city of ruins, this temple was built in the 7th century and is still in use. The temple is on the southern banks of the River Tungabhadra and has a very simple design and architecture. Over so many years and the changing rule of so many kings, a number of additions and expansions had been made in the form of pillars and small rooms. The temple is one of the gems of this ruined place and was built of simple brick and mortar. The life size idols of Lord Shiva is attractive and overall this place is an important site of pilgrimage for Shaivites. The present temple is also almost in ruins but still in use.

Tungabhadra Gardens and Dam

From here on out till lunch the day is a little fuzzy as we mostly drove around viewing temples of little architectural beauty with the sun consistently beating down upon us. But it was a fun ride nonetheless as our excitement did not abate. We visited the Durga Temple grounds but could not bring ourselves to undertake another arduous climb. From there we went to the nearby Lakshmi Temple and settled in for a quick photo session of the surroundings. We then returned the moped and set off for lunch. After lunch though we returned to the Bazaar side of the river and prepared to go to the Tungabhadra Dam. The dam is such a remarkable feat of the human mind and the expanse of water so large that one would feel consumed and alone in the world!
