Lepakshi Temple : Kalyana Mantapam Introduction

Lepakshi is a small village, which lies nine miles east of Hindupur in Anantapur District of Andhra. Hindupur is a railway station on the main metre-gauge line between Hyderabad and Bangalore, and from Hindupur there is a good metalled road to Lepakshi on which several good bus connections exist. There is a dak bungalow at Hindupur, - as well as at Lepakshi, where pilgrims can conveniently stay. Lepakshi is famous for its temple of Veerabhadra, and is also a renowned place where the best specimens of the mural paintings of the Vijayanagar kings are available.

This temple is a notable example of the Vijayanagar style of architecture, and is built on a low rocky hill, which is called Kurmasaila so called because the bill is like a tortoise, in shape. An inscription on the exit of the outer wall of the temple records that one Virupanna constructed it in the 16th century.
