Ugra Narasimha Temple, Hampi

Ugra Narasimha Temple Overview

The gigantic 8/9 metres high image of Ugra Narasimha is situated in the south of the Hemakuta collection of temples that includes the Virupaksha Temple. The Narasimha is a four-armed figure seated under the canopy of a seven-hooded snake. Beyond the Krishna Temple Complex is the famous but badly injured sculpture of Narasimha, carved out of a single boulder. The current discovery of the detached figure of Lakshmi identified this huge sculpture as Yoga Lakshmi Narasimha. Now in a damaged state, the awesome image depicts the benign aspect of the god since a part of the right hand goddess Lakshmi skirts around the Narasimha suggesting that goddess Lakshmi was originally seated on his lap. The monolith s disfigured but its significance is undisputed The gigantic 8/9 metres high image of Ugra Narasimha is situated in the south of the Hemakuta collection of temples that includes the Virupaksha Temple.
