SRIMUSHNAM

The famous temple for Vishnu as Bhuvaraha is located here. The front Mandapam, called the Purushasukta Mandapam, was built by the Nayaks in the 17th Century and is noted for its architectural treasures. Purushasukta Mandapam shaped like a chariot, replete with carvings of figures of warriors mounted on horses and elephants. On the pillars in the centre of the hall are carved royal portraits of the Nayak family which was responsible for the building of the temple.
