Hampi - Kuduregombe Mantapa

Hampi – Kuduregombe

Kuduregombe Mantapa is located on Vittalaraya Bazaar, midway between Gejjala Mantapa and the Vittala Temple.

Highly decorated front pillars of the Mantapa has sculptures of horses with riders mounted on them.

The Garbha griha doesn’t have any deities – though the pedestal inside indicates once there was one.

3 sides of the Mantapa is fully covered with only the front side open. Being on the main bazaar road where chariot processions used to happen, suggests this structure had significance during annual festivals.

There is a Pushkarani (Temple water tank) across the road.
