A very imposing and huge structure, Mahanavami Dibba is where the kings of the Vijayanagara Empire ruled the kingdom with the gem studded golden throne and observed the religious and royal processions passing by.
The structure is embroidered with thickly carved bands of soldiers, horses and figures of a variety of aspects of courtly life. The tallest structure in the area, this resembles an elevated platform from far off distance. The king Krishnadevaraya built this structure to commemorate the victory over Udaygiri.
At the backside of the platform double sided staircase exist. This is a nice ancient structure to visit and get the memory of royal periods.
