Hazara Rama Temple, Hampi

(140+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Discover a key structure within the World Heritage-listed complex of Hampi monuments at Hazara Rama Temple, featuring walls carved with thousands of images depicting scenes from the "Ramayana." Constructed in the 15th century, the relatively small structure served as private shrine for King Vijayanagara and his closest relatives. Renovations carried out after the original construction added an open porch and elaborate pillars to the simple building, which has just two halls and a sanctum. Note the well-preserved external walls with bas-reliefs of Krishna and Rama, as well as images of public processions and festivals involving soldiers, dancers, and trained elephants and horses.

  • This was among my top favourites in Hampi. A temple albeit small in size but big in artwork. The walls have the whole of Ramayana carved on and more. Lots of carvings in the granite pillars inside too. A treat to watch and a must visit.
  • Well maintained heritage site. The temple walls have hundreds of carved panels depicting various episodes of Ramayana. One of the must-visit places in Hampi
  • A temple of great historical importance in Hampi. As a rite people do pradakshin after entering in the temple premises and before entering into the main temple-garbha gudi, this is where you Learn The Ramayana which was beautifully​ carved on the walls of this temple. They say the name was because of those 1000 sculpted depictions of the Ramayana.Hazar means 1000 in Hindi.And the outer wall of the temple shows how the possessions​ & celebrations that took place in the kingdom during Dussehra, which was first celebrated in Hampi and later currently followed by the kings of Mysore.unfortunately the idols here are not worshiped ,since they are destroyed in the invasions then.
  • Ramayan...stories....carvings....sculptures....all the walls speak our glorious past
  • A small but historically important temple. The walls of the temple have very fine carvings.
