Sasivekalu Ganesha Temple, Hampi

4.2
Featuring one of the largest statues within the World Heritage-listed Hampi complex of monuments, Sasivekalu Ganesha Temple consists of plain pillars enclosing a 2.5 m (8 ft) tall sculpture of Ganesha in a seated half-lotus position. In this representation, the deity possesses four arms and a giant belly, the result of his insatiable love of food. Hindu mythology claims Ganesha once enjoyed such a heavy meal, he had to tie a snake around his inflated stomach to keep it from bursting--hence the carved serpent encircling the statue's belly.
