What to Expect
Your Professional Guide with executive chauffeur reports by 0730 AM at your place of stay to travel on excellent safe road for over 3.30 hrs to witness one of the must see Temple Architectures in India i.e at Alampur. Drive passes through Picturesque villages, paddy fields, chilly farmers, cattles, lazy villagers, cotton growers are the best regions to see the real countryside. On reaching Alampur on the Banks of Tungabhadra river you will be shown two complexes of 7th Cen AD temples. One is Brahma and the other Papanasam.  

Swarga Brahma temple  is at the end of the rectangular hall with relief figures of the Krishna Lila, Animals, Garuda-nose faces and Matrumurti. Loving couples and flying spirits, a wall sculpture entitled Lingodbhavamurti of Shiva, the carving skillfully releases energies into the universe with terrifying violence. The Mithuna couples show the sculptor's sensitiveness to tenderness between the male and the female, through the evocation of desire lurking below the surface of life and evoked here through the woman's shy withdrawal and the man dragging her by the arm from the natural urge of seduction.

Padma Brahma Temple two dwarpalikas near the square gateway, with the flying figure on the top

Garuda Brahma temple elaborate carvings on the pillars inside the hall, with the cool shadows secured for the extension of consciousness into the non-sensuous realms of calm.

Bala Brahma Temple has remained in worship through the centuries. The most vital image is the mother goddess in the small shrine.

Arka Brahma Temple The roof of this has disappeared and it is a mere ruin.

Kumara Brahma Temple a row of seven heads, carved on the hall door frame.

Vira Brahma Temple There is nothing to distinguish this temple from the others.

Vishva Brahma Temple The floral relief of Makara’s and birds with flying figures indicate the lyricism of desire flowing through them from the springtime of the Chalukyan sensibility.

Taraka Brahma Temple differs from all the other Nava Brahma group of shrines, because it is built in the mergent southern style. It has a garbhagriha, an antarala and a porch. The top consisting of Sala, Kudu and Panjaran can be graduating towards the gopuram style.

After Vegetarian simplified lunch (included) at Tourism Guest house you will visit the Archaeological Museum with Incredible sculptures exhibited in several countries.  

Before you drive back, please do visit Papanasam temples mostly visited by locals to get rid of the sins.
