The axis of Virupaksha extends 250 feet, ranging from the entrance to the Nandi pavilion, porch, mandapa and lingam sanctuary, all aligned from east to west. The design is so akin to the Kailasanata Temple at Kanchipuram that Cousens writes (p. 61) that "it seems likely, then, that Vikramaditya was so struck with the Kanchi temples that he induced some of the best architects of that capital to return with him." Built by Queen Lokamahadevi, it was originally called the Lokesvara Temple.
