Shweta Varahaswamy Temple



Popularly known as the Barahaswamy Temple, the Shweta Varahaswamy Temple is situated near the southern portion of the Mysore Fort. Built in accordance to the Hoysala architectural style, the Shweta Varahaswamy Temple is one of the ancient temples of the city. The Shweta Varahaswamy Temple is an architectural wonder with intricate carvings on its doorway, towers and pillars.

The Navaranga of the Shweta Varahaswamy Temple of Mysore boasts of some exceptional murals and paintings on the walls. Depicting incidents from the epics - Bhagwat Gita, Ramayana and the life of Lord Krishna, the Navaranga has earned immense popularity among the tourists and art lovers.

The beauty of the Shweta Varahaswamy Temple in Mysore does not cease with the Navaranga only but its elegance is evident in its other parts also.
Like many other temples of the region, the Shweta Varahaswamy Temple has also been enriched by contributions from the Wodeyor Kings. The images of the two Srivaishnava Acharya - Jiyar and Desikar have valuable inscriptions on them. The inscriptions tell us that the statues were gifted by Krishnaraja Wodeyor III during the 19th century.

Surrounded by high scaling walls, the temple takes a fortified look. The walls are also nicely carved with wonderful murals. The coronation of Rama known as the Rama Pattabhisheka has come alive with the magnificent mural on the southern walls of the temple. The Shweta Varahaswamy Temple is a major tourism destination and definitely one of the greatest Mysore Temples.
