Statue of Ugra Narsimha, Hampi

(4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
The most imposing monolith in the ruins of the Hampi World Heritage Site, Statue of Ugra Narsimha stands 6.7 m (21 ft) tall. Carved in 1528, this half-man, half-lion statue--one of the ten avatars of Lord Vishnu--sits on the coils of a giant seven-headed snake. Since it sustained damage during a Moghul raid, prayers are no longer offered, in keeping with the Hindu tradition forbidding worship of damaged idols. Inspect the expressive stone sculpture, whose lion teeth and angry eyes give it a particularly fierce aspect. Put Statue of Ugra Narsimha into our Hampi trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
