The Hazara Ram temple has the entire tale of Ramayana depicted in visuals on the walls of the temple. The temple itself is not as huge as other big temples of Hampi but is still big enough.
Guide informed that we one goes around the temple 3 times one can understand Ramayana...the story has be sculpted in 3 rows; very beautifully indeed.
I wondered how they made all of the intricate, fine details and cut-outs from stone hundreds of years ago.
Its not an active temple, compare to other ruins this is in quite good shape, very good carvings on the walls and pillars. Very beautiful place.

Hazara Rama Temple This small but highly ornate temple is no longer in use and the sanctum is empty but originally it was dedicated to Lord Vishnu in the form of Rama. The name Hazara-Rama denotes Thousand Ramas carved on the temple walls. This palace temple is close to the Royal enclosure. The outer walls are richly carved in bold bas-relief and depict scenes from the Ramayana. At the center of the inner hall, there are four exquisitely carved and polished pillars of the black stone. The ornate central ceiling has the usual alternating square courses with a finely carved lotus motif in the middle. This temple is a veritable picture gallery. Its walls and pillars capture the immortal legends of the Ramayana in stone
