This huge monolith "Shivlinga" is a true exhibition of an architectural excellence of Vijayanagara empire and Krishnadevaraya. This statue is situated next to Ugra Narasimha statue and is in completely intact condition.

Badavilinga Temple is a wonderful temple in Hampi dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple has a huge monolithic Shivling, part of which is submerged in water. It is a popular tourist spot in Hampi.

This is a huge Shivalinga carved out of single stone. It is partially submerged in the knee deep water. But nothing much to see from architecture perspective.

The Shivlinga looks pretty huge and attractive. Part of it is submerged in water, which is not visible due to yellow color of the water.the rock size is huge. there is a unique mark of the third eye which is rare on any shivlinga in india.
