Virupaksha Temple in Hampi, India

A UNESCO Heritage Site, this 7th-century Hindu temple has a gateway tower, courtyards & dining hall.









Members of Virupaksha Temple and Hindu devotees walk in the temple's premises, as their reflections are seen in a puddle of water in Hampi on Aug. 17, 2019. Hampi, UNESCO's World Heritage site, was till recently under the threat of floods from the overflowing Tungabhadra river.

Virupaksha Temple is located in Hampi in the Ballari district of Karnataka, India. It is part of the Group of Monuments at Hampi, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The temple is dedicated to Virupaksha, a form of Shiva. The temple was built by Lakkan Dandesha, a nayaka (chieftain) under the ruler Deva Raya II of the Vijayanagara Empire.

Hampi, capital of the Vijayanagara empire, sits on the banks of the Tungabhadra River. Virupaksha Temple is the main center of pilgrimage at Hampi, and had been considered the most sacred sanctuary over the centuries. It is intact among the surrounding ruins and is still used in worship . The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, known here as Virupaksha, as the consort of the local goddess Pampadevi who is associated with the Tungabhadra River. There is also a Virupakshini Amma temple (mother goddess) in a village called Nalagamapalle, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, approximately 100 km from Tirupati.
