Virupaksha Temple - Reviews From Travellers
What travellers say about Virupaksha Temple
One of the main attractions in #hampi, Virupaksha temple is still in use for religious ceremonies. The old structure has tall gates and many idols. The main attraction is the freely roaming elephant inside the temple which gives you blessings (I think for a fee of ten rupees or something). The temple is connected to the nearby Tunghgabadra river where the elephant takes its daily bath in the morning. In addition to the elephant, the temple has a monkey population of monkeys as well. There are no entrance restrictions for any nationality or religion in the temple, the many tourist guide sellers can be a bit annoying at times.
The main center of Pligrimage at Hampi. Surrounded by ruins and still used for worship.
