ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM, KAMALAPURA AND HAMPI – HAMPI RUINS, A HERITAGE VISIT

....a Continuation post to Sri ChandraSekara Temple 
19th June 2017.
Both the museums houses various antiquities that were recovered in and around Hampi like pre historic stone implements, Pottery, stone, Metal, and Stucco sculptures, Coins of Vijayanagara empire, Copper plate epigraphs, metal objects, Manuscripts and miscellaneous objects. The Kamalapura museum has three galleries viz: Shaiva, Vaishnava and miscellaneous. It has a scaled model of Hampi valley in the courtyard. In addition to this there are  two more cultural galleries near Lotus mahal.

To my observation the sculptures are mainly for Hero stones, sati stones and Veerabhadirar and other deities.
