Stone Chariot, Hampi

About Stone Chariot Information-Hampi

The stone chariot is within the Vijayavitthala temple complex which is an icon by itself and demands special mention. The structure is an unbelievable form of stone chiseling that describes the beauty of this wonderful man-made piece of art. Situated to the east of the hall, Stone chariot has stone wheels which some believe actually rotate. In front of the shrine stands the great Mantapa. Resting on a richly sculpted basement, its roof is supported by huge pillars of granite, about 15 feet in height, each consisting of a central pillar surrounded by detached shafts, all cut from one single block of stone in which the idols of the temple are taken out on a traditional procession.
