world pictures Peninsular India: Hampi Sacred Center

The Krishna Temple dates from 1514, when the king brought home an image of Kalakrishna he had captured from the Udayagiri Fort, atop a seemingly impregnable peak in the Nellore District, about 200 miles to the southeast. To house it he built this temple, the first sign at Vijayanagara of a Vaishnava deity. This king, Krishna Deva Raya, was also responsible for the eastern gopuram of Virupaksha, the beginning of the Vitthala Temple, and the Narasimha monolith. The Hazara Rama temple, which appears in the next folder, was his work, too.
