Overview

Kodandaramaswami Temple is a Hindu Temple. Located at Hiremagalur near Chikkamagaluru. Rama and Lakshmana are depicted with their bows and arrows here. As Rama’s bow is called Kodanda, this temple is known as Kodandarama Temple. The Temple  have been constructed in three stages, with its garbhagrha and sukhanasi structures in the Hoysala style. The remaining portions are additions in Dravidian style. The present navaranga is of the 14th century. While the mukhamandapa may be of the 16th century. Inside the sanctum, on a Hanuman pedestal, there are the figures of Rama, Lakshmana and Sita. Unusually, Sita is placed to Rama’s right in this temple. It is believed that a devotee Puroshottama expressed a wish to see Rama and Sita’s wedding and he was granted the wish. As the bride in traditional Hindu marriage sits to the right of the groom, this position, it is believed, is reflected in the Garbhagraha. The outer walls of the garbhagruha and vestibule are raised on a square basement which consists of six cornices. The outer walls of the Garbhagraha and Sukhanasi are sculpted with figures of the various forms of Vishnu like Hayagriva, Narasimha, and Krishna. There are also figures of Lakshmi, Hanuman, Garuda and Ganapati. Navaranga and mukhamandapa are built with brick and mortar.
