About Statue Of Ugra Narasimha, Hampi
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.

Statue Of Ugra Narasimha, Hampi Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing monolithic carving of Lord Narasimha. It's a massive structure but clearly shows the lack of investment from the archeology department to preserve these heritage monuments. As per myth Lord Narasimha is accompanied by goddess Lakshmi on his left lap but this structure is destroyed in this aspect the carving of goddess Lakshmi is missing. There is no over head roof to protect the monument from sunlight and rain.
Great work of piece in stone art but u can't go nearest inside due to preservation of ancient art eliment
The statue of narasimha is very amazing but its all broken. I wish the tourism dept would have started maintaining hampi from a long ago.
The statue is partially destroyed by invaders just like many other beautiful places in Hampi.The original statue is supposed to carry Goddess Lakshmi in his hands. But now you can find the Lakshmi Statue in Kamalapur Archaeological Museum.
Very big narasimha statue of vijayanagara ruling period. Excellent architecture
