In today's secret, we will tell you about the Virupaksha temple. This mysterious temple included in the famous historical temples of India is located in Hampi, Karnataka. It is believed that Hampi is of Kishkindha of the Ramayana period. Virupaksha form of Lord Shiva is worshiped in this temple. This ancient temple is also included in the UNESCO World Heritage. There are many specialties of this temple and mystery is also attached to it. The British also tried to know the secret of this temple, but they did not get success.
Dedicated to Lord Virupaksha and his consort Goddess Pampa, the specialty of this temple is that the Shivling here is tilted towards the south. It is a religious belief that Ravana worshiped Lord Shiva for victory in the battle with Lord Rama. After this, when Lord Shankar appeared, Ravana asked him to establish Shivling in Lanka.
Lord Shiva agreed to Ravana's repeated prayers, but he put a condition in front of him. The condition was that the Shivling should not be kept on the ground while being taken to Lanka. Ravana was going to Lanka with the Shivling, but on the way, he gave a person to hold the Shivling, but because of his weight, he kept the Shivling on the ground. Since then this Shivling remained here and could not be moved even after thousands of attempts.
Pictures of that event have been made on the walls of Virupaksha Temple. It is shown that Ravana is praying to Lord Shankar to lift the Shivling again, but Lord Shiva refuses. It is also believed that this was the abode of Lord Vishnu, but he considered this place too large to live in and went back to Kshirsagar.
It is said that this temple is about 500 years old. Built-in the Dravidian architectural style, the Gopuram of this temple was built more than 500 years ago, which is 50 meters high. Apart from Lord Shiva and Goddess Pampa, there are many small temples here. The Virupaksha temple was built by Lokamaha Devi, the queen of Vikramaditya II. This temple is also known as Padmavati Temple.
