About Laksmi Narasimha Temple

Lakshmi Narasimha Temple is a popular pilgrimage and tourist destination located near the Royal Centre. This giant monolithic statue of the man-lion god is the largest icon in Hampi. Narasimha is found in a cross-legged seated position, sitting on the seven hooded Sesha snake. Also known as the Ugra Narasimha, the original structure had his consort Lakshmi sitting on his lap. Now only the hand of Lakshmi can be seen attached to Narasimha at the back. The statue of Lakshmi was damaged during enemy invasion and is now one of the exhibits at the nearby Kamalapura Museum. This is a perfect place for those who are interested in archeological monuments. The whole family can enjoy the heritage walks organized by guides. The weather in Hampi can be quite hot during the peak summers due to the heat emanating from the rock monuments. The best time to visit the monument would be between the months of October and February when the weather is cooler. The Badavalinga Temple and the Krishna Temple are the other attractions located close to the Lakshmi Narasimha Temple. Hampi is one of the prominent tourist hotspots. Shared autos, cabs, rented mopeds and rented cycles are available here.
