Prime Attractions

Chennakesava Temple
The beautiful temple reigns on a star shaped pedestal. Surfaces are covered with well-proportioned figures.

Madanikas (Bracket Figures)
On the elaborate ceiling the four famed bracket figures are inspired by Shantala Devi's sensuous beauty. One figurine beauty communicates with a parrot whose tail is peacock-like while wrings water from her long hair and one can see the drops collected on hair-ends. The 650 elephants charging on the fresco in the walls outside are all dissimilar from each other. The 38 Bracket figures on the walls are good-looking.

Shantala Devi
On the flat circular podium in the facade of the shrine stands the statue of the attractive Shantala Devi, queen of King Vishnuvardhana. The jewellery is void and variable. The fragility and attention to the least possible details here are unbelievable.

Pillars
In the amazing darkness inside sparkle the gorgeous handlathe -turned curved pillars, each exclusive in its filigreed brilliance.

The Narasimha Pillar once rotated on its sphere bearings. A small space has been left on it to be sculpted by anyone who has the talent. It remains intact.
