Seeing and being blessed by the elephant was fantastic, following her here from the river bathing. At the weekends there are many colourful morning cermemonies bringing the temple to life.

This is a must visit place in Hampi. Heaven for photographers. You can just go on clicking beautiful pic of this place and get lost within yourself listening to the stories . However we dint get to experience the musical pillers.

it is one of the best temple ruins in Hampi. The Chariot is the center of attraction with musical pillars. many people only visit the temple but do not walk to the ruins behind the temple. Sule bazaar and the Achutaraya temple is behind vithala temple.

The stone chariot was awesome. The overall temple was also big and made us wonder about the size of the city given the time when the temple was built since it catered to the city population.

The ruins of the Vijayanagar empire at Hampi are the most magnificent remnants of a civilization at the height of its splendour and glory. The capital of the kings of Vijayanagar must have been more splendid than the capitals of any other empire in the past, including the Roman, the Greek and the Byzantine empires. The magnificent creations in granite... More

Vithala complex is the best thing about Hampi. It will definitely take you back to Vijayanagar empire. The entire architecture and carving on it are pretty , with each building having a story behind it. Musical pillars will surprise you with the beats they can produce. It will be advisable to hire a guide there but the one deputed there... More
