Statue Of Ugra Narasimha - Review
The Ugra Narasimha Statue is the largest statue in Hampi that is situated in the Lakshminarasimha Temple complex. Here, the Lord Narasimha who is an avatar of Lord Vishnu and is a depiction of half man and half lion is sitting in the coil of a giant seven headed snake known as the Shesha Naga. The heads of the snake acts as a hood over the lord. He sits here in a cross legged yogic posture with a belt supporting his knees.
The Narasimha is one of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu and as the name of the statue says this is in a fierce form. The statue is huge with protruding eyes and teeth. The original statue had an idol of Goddess Lakshmi the consort of the God sitting on his lap. Due to the invasions, this statue is missing and is probably lying into pieces. What remains is only the hand of the lakshmi statue embracing the Narasimha’s shoulder.

Statue Of Ugra Narasimha, Hampi Reviews
The sculpture is beautiful - but damaged just like many others. You can’t touch the statue anymore- but can go right up to the gate. Not wheelchair accessible
This is the largest statue in Hampi. Narasimha is sitting on the coil of a giant seven-headed snake called Sesha. The heads of the snake acts as the hood above his head. The god sits in a cross-legged Yoga position with a belt supporting the knees. Narasimha (means half-man’half-lion in local the languages) is on of the ten incarnations (avatar) of Lord Vishnu.
Such a huge ruined statue. Cleanly maintained though statue is a ruin. Good place for a photo. Parking is a bit congested. Walk is preferred
Very good monument. Put this on your to do list if you are visiting Hampi. In fact along with chariot and lotus Mahal this is also one of the trademark image of Hampi. Must see
What an amazing big sculpture which looks very real to our visible eyes. Even eyes of Sri Ugra narasimha is so attractive. Flat belt running through folded legs are also good. Huge monolithic structure it seems.Expression of Swamy *( God) is really nice which describes Ugram (cruelty ). Narasimha meaning the blend of human with lion head is sculpted here
