The Virupaksha Temple, Hemakuta Hill and Krishna Temple form the western edge of the Sacred Center of Vjiaynagar. As we walk eastwards from that set of monuments, we come across an area called Chakra Tirth, a sacred spot on the banks of the Tungabhadra, at the northern base of the boulder-covered Matanga Hill. There are a few active temples here, which mostly house bas-relief deities chiselled onto boulders.
