The Veeragallu which is a granite stone has inscriptions in Kannada and also carvings of warfare. The carvings include soldiers getting ready for war, soldiers in combat and dead soldiers being taken to heaven by ‘Apsaras’ (nymphs).

On the top portion of the Veeragallu, there is a carving of Lord Vishnu, a soldier with a sword and Garuda (vehicle mount of Lord Vishnu). There are also carvings of women offering ’Arathi.’
