SRI CHANDRASEKARA TEMPLE – HAMPI RUINS, A HERITAGE VISIT.

…. A Continuation post to Octagonal Water Pavilion 
19th June 2017.
This east facing  16th ( some body claims it is 15th century ) century Chandrasekara was built very near to Queens bath.  This temple was dedicated to Lord shiva.

The sanctum sanctorum consists of sanctum, antarala, sabamandapa and muka mandapa. This temple has a prakara and Rajagopuram is on the east side. The Vimana over the sanctum was built in Dravidian style with three tiers using bricks and mortar. The sabamandpa has two entrances and the  pillars has the reliefs of saivate  deities.

With this we wounded up our Hampi Ruins Heritage Visit after a brief meeting. Mr Gireesh was presented a Guide book of Badami with all our signatures and said good bye to each other and get dropped at Bus stand for return journey to Chennai with full of Hampi memories lingering in our minds.  Thanks to Gireesh, Mr Rajasekar, Mrs Vidya and my co-participants for this wonderful heritage visit. Thanks to all once again.
