One of the main attractions and the only live temple dating back to 14th century dynasty... the friendly elephant Lakshmi who gives blessings to the devotees is a wow factor there. Brilliant in architecture

This huge temple complex houses some of the best architectural works of the Vijayanagara Empire period. It has a Shiva Temple. The Three Nandi statues are partly damaged and hence are kept outside the Garb Graha.
