Underground Shiva Temple (Prasanna Virupaksha Temple)

Hampi, Karnataka 583239, India

Hindu Temple
Notable Architecture

For some curious reasons, this temple dedicated to Lord Siva was built many meters below the ground level.  Almost all the time the sanctum and the core parts of the temple are underwater, restricting entry to the inner areas. There is a beautiful lawn built around the temple. Usually a less crowded location
