Varaha Temple Tourism

Varaha Temple, HampiOne of the finest architectural marvel of the Vijaynagara Dynasty, Varaha Temple is located in the northern end of the Courtesan's street. There is a beautiful river near the temple. The temple is famous for its wall carvings. The bas-relief's of boars are the wall carvings attracting tourist's attention. Surprisingly, there is no idol in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple. At the entrance of the temple a huge tower was erected. The temple complex was built in rectangular shape. Recently the Archaeological Survey of India has given a facelift to the temple.

The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. According to Purans, Varaha(the mythical boar) is the third incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He took this form to save the people on earth from the wrath of a demon named Hiranyaksa. The incarnation of the lord Vishnu fought with the demon at the bottom of the mythic ocean. The fight continued for years together. And finally the Varaha won.

According to one of the school of experts the temple could be dedicated to Lord Shiva and not to Lord Vishnu. Many stories revolve around the temple. But no one knows the truth due to the lack of authentic proofs.
