The King’s Balance also known as Tulapurushandana is located to the south-west of Vittala temple. The structure is five meters tall and is like an archway, carved from stone. It is believed that, on ceremonious occasions like lunar and solar eclipses and Dussera, the King was weighed against gold, jewels and precious stones, which was then distributed to the temple priests. There are three loops on the structure into which the balance must have hung. You can also spot image of the king and his queens on one of the pillars.
