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
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
Monolith creativity Many of the body part has damaged. Totally awesome.
Very famous monolithic idol of Ugra Narasimha. Hope the ruins remain intact. Maintained by ASI.
Narasimha is an avatar of Hindu god lord vishnu and this is the largest statue in hampi and depicts lord Vishnu or narasimha in angry and narasimha means half man and half lion
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. The original statue contained the image of goddess Lakshmi, consort of the god, sitting on his lap. But this statue has been damaged seriously during the raid leading to the fall of Vijayanagara. Even the damaged portion of such a large statue of Lakshmi carved on his lap is missing. Probably it may be laying around in tiny pieces. But the goddess’s hand is visible resting on his back in embracing posture. If you get a chance to go inside this enclosure, it is possible to see the hand of the goddess. Even the nails & the rings on her fingers are so perfectly executed.
