As you go up the rocky steps of the hill adjoining the Bull temple you will come across the Anjaneya temple.


This is small shrine dedicated to Anjaneya or Monkey God or Hanuman as he is popularly known. Hanuman has a pre eminent position in the Hindu Epic Ramayan. It was Hanuman who took upon himself to travel to Sri Lanka to ascertain the whereabouts of Sita and played a significant role in the battle Ram had with the King of Sri Lanka- Ravan.


It must be remembered that the many icons were excavated and at the spot of excavation the shrine has been reconstructed with the excavated materials as truly as possible by the Archeological Survey of India who are the guardians of the Hampi ruins.


Climbing a little further you will come across the Achyutaraya Temple. The Achyutaraya Temple is a large complex built by an officer of the King Achyutaraya - Salakaraju Tirumaldeva. This temple is better known as Achyutaraya Temple in whose period this was built rather than the name of the presiding deity - Tiruvengalanatha or Lord Venkateshwara.


Enjoy the pictures.
