The lobby at The Leela Goa is a contemporary celebration of the palatial architecture of ancient Vijayanagara empire and Goa’s rich portuguese heritage. An intricate frieze, depicting the highly prized elephants which comprised the powerful armies of the 14th and 15th century Vijayanagara kings, adorns the upper and lower outer cornices of this entrance. Drawing an inspiration from the Thousand Pillared Hall in the Meenakshi Temple at Madurai, the central columns form a corridor guarded by the Yalis, which leads to an impressive image of the dancing God Natraj.
