Note: Krishnaswami temple built by Krishnadevaraya at Hampi is located in Karnataka. He also built the Vijaya Mahal (House of Victory) and expanded the Hazara Rama temple and the Vithal Swami temple. He took the titles of Yavanaraja Sthapanacharya and Abhinnava-Bhoja.

The Krishna Temple, built in 1531 by King Krishnadevaraya of the Tuluva dynasty, contains lofty gopurams (grand entry portals) that lead to shrines and structures for the worship of the idol Balakrishna. Two concentric walls enclose the structure with granite colonnades, and stone carving, stucco detailing, and towering shikhars (ciphers) define the monument.

The Krishna Temple is part of a group of monuments in Hampi that were inscribed on the World Heritage list in 1986. In 1999, it was placed on the World Heritage in Danger list because of insufficient maintenance and encroachment from nearby development.

Hampi was the capital of the Vijayanagara Empire. The remnants of the site are a testament to existence of the extinct civilization of the great Vijayanagara Empire. Temples and palaces built by princes and kings in the Dravidian style of architecture were marvelled at by travelers from the Middle East and Europe during the empire’s peak.

Vijayanagara, on the Deccan Plateau along the Tungabhadra River, was also known as the “City of Victory.” Under the rule of King Krishnadevaraya, Vijayanagara experienced an extraordinary revival of Hindu religion, art, and architecture before its extinction following the onslaught of invading Muslim armies.
