OCTAGONAL WATER PAVILION – HAMPI RUINS, A HERITAGE VISIT.

….a continuation post to Saraswati Temple 
19th June 2017.
This octagonal water pavilion  is a stone throwaway distance from Saraswati temple. This might have been constructed during 16th century. There is a octagonal stage at the centre surrounded by an open mandapam with very simple pillars. The roof and side are plastered with lime mortar and remains of  intricate carvings can be seen on the ceiling. There are holes to get water from outside to this pavilion on each corner of the octagon.

It was around 14.00 hrs when we completed this Octagonal water pavilion visit. Instead of all the way going to Hampi, we decided to brought the lunch to this pavilion.
