Influence of the Vijayanagar empire spread far and wide during the intervening years of 1300 to 1650 AD. For 300 years, the empire grew from strength to strength and during its zenith, their reign extended from the Bengal to Kerala. The magnificent murals of Lepakshi stands now a forlorn witness to the glorious heights the Vijayanagar empire achieved in the field of art and architecture.
