Pampa Sarovar is a sacred pond for the Hindus. This is believed as one among a few Sarovars (sacred ponds) mentioned in Hindu epics and scriptures.
The pond and the shrine are located in a secluded valley hidden by boulder hills at the three sides. The pond, rectangular in shape, is usually filled edge-to-edge by floating lotus.
The whitewashed shrine is located right next to the pond. This is a functioning temple and the idols worshiped are of Lord Shiva & his consort Parvathi (Pampa).This shrine is much ancient than many of the temples in Hampi.A vividly painted musical instrument placed in the temple courtyard is interesting.The instrument at a time plays a drum, metal plates and a couple of bells attached to it. The whole thing is driven by a motor attached the mechanisms. These were the temple musical instruments originally played by the temple musicians.
