Photographer's Note

Vittala tapınağı,Vijayanagara döneminin en önemli anıt alanlarından biri, bir külliye. Dikdörtgen bir alan içerisinde tapınaklar, müzikholler ve çeşitli başka yapılar var. Açık bir köşk görünümünde olan Kalyana Mandapa ise evlenmelerin tanrıların huzurunda yapıldığı kutsal bir, bugünün tabiriyle, evlendirme dairesi.

The Vitthala Temple is one of the greatest monuments of the Vijayanagara period and dates from the 16th Century. The complex has a number of structures inside a rectangular court. The Kalyana Mandapa, an open pavilion, was used for ceremonies involving the symbolic marriage of the temple's divinity to his consort. Its interior, surrounded by impressive columns, contains a platform in the centre for the performance of sacred dances. Massive pillars, decorated with soldiers riding yalis, carry the large brackets and roof beams.
