Hazara Rama Temple, Hampi

(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • What an incredible sculpting. Not just the inner temple but the entire walls of the temple are just filled with beautiful sculpting of the Ramayana. Just loved to see the greatness of the sculptures from the ancient times. Sculpted beams supporting the top of the inner sanctum are made of granite which is more fascinating.
  • Hazaram Rama temple one of the top attractive in Hampi. Which depicts the mythological story of Ramayana, Hazara r am means thousand Rama,
  • One of the best preserved. The black carved stone pillars turned in lathes are unique. Also the walls with sculptures showing the scenes from Ramayana. But it lacks finesse.
  • great and old temple. wonderful archetecture
  • 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.
