Installed by a poor lady with all her life's savings - the water does not dry even when the heat dries up everything else - Rajah Krishnadev honored it that speaks volumes of His greatness as a king. Beautiful Statue.

This is a huge linga that is in the same area as ugra narasimha. We were fortunate to see a water snake inside the grabhagriha that seemed to head towards the linga

This is very huge shivlinga which is right next to narshima statue and walkable from Krishna temple. I'd recommend having a guide or reading about it prior to visiting such place cause they've number of stories related to it which makes the visit more interesting.

The Badavilinga temple with 3 meters Shivalinga is located close to Ugra Narasimha. It is a monolithic structure pertaining to Vijayanagara dynasty in Hampi and is partly submerged in water coming from Tungabhadra river canal. Worth a visit when you visit Ugra Narasimha.

This is a huge one, close to ugra narshima statue. People say the water in which the linga seems to be submerged is pure and putting few drops over your head(sab paap se mukht ho jaoge). This depends on your belief, sharing few things which we got to know talking to locals and our driver who took us to all... More

Next to the Ugranarsimha statue or the Lakshmi Narasimha statue is the Badaviling temple or the Shivlinga which is enclosed in a room filled with water. This is also a monolith structure and huge in size. Locals believe in sprinkling the water on their head. If the place looks too crowded, just wait a few mins, it will clear up

It's a very impressive monolithic Shivalinga. There is an elderly gentleman who comes here everyday, gets into the water surrounding the Shivalinga, prays and keeps the place clean. Well maintained and worth a watch along with Ugra Narsimha statue next to it

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.
