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.
