A millennia-old sculpture depicting Lord Vishnu adorned with his ten avatars, known as ‘dashavatara,’ was found near the Krishna river in Karnataka’s Raichur district.

This remarkable discovery draws parallels with the recently enshrined idol of Ram Lalla in the newly erected Ram Temple in Ayodhya according to PTI. 

The Vishnu statue is of immense importance as it showcases the diverse forms of Lord Vishnu, including Matsya (the fish), Kurma (the tortoise), Varaha (the boar), Narasimha (the half-man, half-lion), Vamana (the dwarf), Parashurama (the axe-wielding warrior), Rama (the prince of Ayodhya), Krishna (the charioteer of Arjuna), Buddha (the enlightened one), and Kalki (the future avatar).
