About Virupaksha Temple in Hampi

Located in the state of Karnataka in Southern India, Virupaksha Temple is one of the group of monuments at Hampi, which has been denominated as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Adorned with magnificent carvings and sculptures, the temple is surrounded with structures including a pillared walkway, courtyards, entrances, and smaller shrines reflecting its eminence as a site of pilgrimage and national prestige both in antiquity and present-time.

The Virupaksha Temple built by Lakhan Dandesha under the ruler Deva Raya-2, stands as a fabled reminiscence of the Vijayanagara Empire. Formerly knowns as Pampapati Temple- a small shrine, the Virupaksha Temple was further bestowed with other structures which turned it into a temple complex glorifying the patronage and power of Vijayanagara rulers.
