The village of Lepakshi’s magnitude of sculptures and temples beckon to the gods of the Vedas in their sonorous native language. Travellers who stand among the iconic and immense Lepakshi Nandi bull, the vehicle of the god Shiva; or the Naga, the divine Serpent, which is believed to have been executed in a single sitting by the sculptor with its immense hood spread protectively over a Shivalinga; or the single unsupported hanging temple pillar all take part in Hindu stories that involuntarily halt the march of time, intuitively linking the observer with more wondrous eras.

The 16th century Veerabhadra temple in Lepakshi was built by two brothers – Viranna and Virupanna - in the Vijayanagar architectural style, and it is stamped with the distinctive hallmark of intricate sculptures and murals. All of the inscriptions on the walls are written in “halle Kannada,” or old Kannada, a shared script with kingdoms further south, mainly encompassing the region of Mysore.
