Shivlinga, Hampi

#7 of 19 in Historic Sites in Hampi
Landmark Religious Site
Carved out of a single rock, Shivlinga was allegedly made by a poor local woman who wanted to thank Lord Shiva for answering her prayers. The lingam sits in an inner temple chamber, its pedestal immersed in water. A visit to Shivlinga represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hampi tour planner to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Hampi

You'll find a number of simple guesthouses and homestays located in Hampi itself, primarily in the Hampi Bazaar district. North and south of the river, they offer comfortable rooms in modest former residential buildings. Further afield, a selection of more upmarket resorts and hotels sit on the banks of the river and the nearby lake to the northwest. Many visitors choose to stay in Hosapete, to the southwest, or the small town of Kamalapur, located just south of Hampi. Both offer a greater range of accommodations than Hampi, including hotels, resorts, and hostels.

  • Its closely situated near to Ugra narasimma, this linga is quite big, can see from outside. It wouldn't take much time pay a visit.  more »
