Inside the temple Vijayavittala, you'll find Hampi, the most famous building. This statue is a shrine built in the form of car, where according to Hindu mythology, Garuda is the vehicle of Lord Vishnu. The float is built with many giant granite blocks but the union of the blocks is perfectly hidden behind the carvings decorating the cart. In front of the chariot two elephants appear to be pulling the cart. These elephants replaced two horses that were carved in the same position. The tails and the rear legs of horses can still be seen behind the elephants.
