Almost at the east end of the Virupaksha Bazaar, a small pathway leading north along the riverbank takes you to the Kodanda Rama Temple. This temple faces Chakrathirtha, which is considered to be the most sacred bathing ghat in the river. (Because of the swift current, it is advisable not to go for a swim here.)

The rectangular "Garbha Griha" of the temple contains large standing figures of Sri Rama, Sita and Lakshmana each nearly 15 feet in height. These figures are carved out of a natural boulder.

Nearby is another temple for Sudarshana. The deity has sixteen hands. There is another temple for Hanuman, within a circular "Yantra", called as Yantrodharaka Anjaneya.

Compared to the other monuments at Hampi, these temples have more religious then architectural significance.
