The second day of our Hampi ruins  heritage Visit after breakfast  started with SasiveKalu Ganesha. ( the meaning of Sasikevalu in kannada is mustard seed ) This is on the way to Hospet to Hampi road, very near to Hampi bus terminus.  As per the inscriptions this monolithic four armed 2.4 meters tall Ganesha  was made by   the merchants from Andhra Pradesh during 16th century  from a single rock. Ganesha is sitting  on a pedestal inside a mandapam. The plain pillars supports a flat ceiling without any ornaments and super structure.  The sculptor carved Ganesha in such a manner that he is sitting on the lap of his mother Parvathi, touching belly on the pedestal.
