Few steps from the Jain Temple leads to the curious monument, which is called
King's Balance or Tula Purushadana. Here the kings of Vijayanagara on certain
occasions like solar or lunar eclipse, New years day and Coronation day used to
perform religious ceremony, having themselves weighed against their own weight
in gold and precious stones and distribute them to the Brahmans. It is on two
lofty 15 feet granite pillars a stone beam (nearly 12 feet) has been kept, carved
with three stone rings, which resemble a large pair of scales. On this ornamentally
carved pillar, sculptures of king and his two wives can be seen.
