Description

Kadalekalu Ganesha is a perfect example of the Vijayanagar style of architecture. The prime attraction of the beautiful shrine housing the statue of Ganesha which is one of the largest in southern India. This incredible monolithic statue is located on the slope of the Hemakuta Hill in Hampi. As the belly of the statue resembles a Bengal gram, which is called Kadalekalu in the local language, the statue is named as Kadalekalu Ganesha. The Ganesha statue is unique in the sense it is about 4.5 meters tall and carved entirely from single granite and is housed in a large shrine with a fine open pillared mantapa in front.

The architecture of this temple is fabulous and you can simply keep gazing at the giant-sized statue of Lord Ganesha. The temple of Kadalekalu Ganesha is a beautiful stone structure. A sanctum is built around the statue. The pillared hall in front of this sanctum is decorated with tall and beautiful pillars. The sculptures on the pillars are depicted with mythological characters. The pillars are constructed in the typical Vijayanagara style of architecture. One of the pillars has a carving depicting naughty infant Krishna hiding on a tree. He steals the clothes of the bathing women and hanged the clothes on the tree and the women request to return their clothes.
