My TripAdvisor Review No.164: Hazara Rama Temple, Hampi.

“Story of Ramayana, Carved in Stone.”
4 of 5 starsReviewed yesterdayNEW
This temple is very close to the Zenana Enclosure and the Royal Enclosure areas. It is believed that this temple served as private place of worship for the royal family.

There are more than a thousand (hazara) wall carvings from the story of Lord Rama, which is probably how the temple got its name.

The temples walls are full of relief carvings depicting incidents from the Hindu mythology, the Ramayana. The carvings are relatively well preserved and the characters are distinct and recognizable. One can easily spend an hour or more looking at the various incidents from the Ramayana depicted on the walls.
