Anegundi – Shiva

Chintamani Shiva Temple is located in Anegundi, across the river from Hampi, on the north bank of Tungabhadra river.

The ancient temple has the Shivalinga in upper floor that could be accessed through a flight of steps.

It is said that centuries ago a saint by the name Chintamani lived here and did penance at the temple premises – hence the place name Chintamani.

The Rama Paadam (place from where Rama shot the arrow killing Vali), Mukti Narasimha Swamy Temple, Devi temple, Samadhi mantap of Sri Krishnadevaraya are nearby.

The views from the temple are priceless!
