Statue of Ugra Narsimha, Hampi

Categories: Monuments, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 240+ 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 as Hindu tradition does not allow worship of damaged idols. Inspect the expressive stone sculpture, whose lion teeth and angry eyes give it a particularly fierce aspect.
