“Religiously important”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Malyavantha hill has the religiously important Rama temple called Raghunatha temple. In this temple Rama and Lakshamana are seen in sitting posture and They are like saints with curled up hair and beaded garland. There is a Sita devi standing by the side. The priest said this is the temple or the place where Rama is meditating and worried about Sita devi not found. Meanwhile lord Anjaneya is in front of lord showing Him the jewels that were thrown down by Sita Devi. Pooja is done in North Indian style. Behind the temple is boulders after boulders. Find one, lay your back, enjoy the panaromic view of Hampi, feel the breeze and watch the sunset. We were not very lucky to see a good sunset. Also it is not a very peaceful place as people gather and gather to watch sunset and gets noisy. Visit in the evening, it is one of the best sunset points.
