This temple is a huge statue of Ganesh. On the back, his mother is hugging him. It was carved from a single block of stone and is about 2 1/2 m tall. Unfortunately defaced as with many other temples when the city was sacked.

This is the first structure (dated back to 16th century AD) that one sees when traveling from Hospet to Hampi. With garden like setting made around the structure, it makes for a beautiful place to visit in the evening.
