Standing in the midst of the ruins, the stone chariot attracts whoever enters the ancient kingdom of Vijayanagara. A Must visit. Try to reach by walk from Virupaksha to Vittala - along the river side- As this is one of the ancient walkways. Total disctance comes around 2 KM from Virupaksha temple. On the way, we can witness : Big... More

Hampi is a ruined city standing as a living example of religious intolerance on the part of Mugal invaders. Among many monuments Vittala Temple is well known as most impressive shrine of Hampi. It offers a blow to visitors’ mind of its past beauty carried on to the present era on southern bank of Tungabhadra River. We can see an... More

Amazing carvings done out of singular rocks. Simply incredible. Never seen anything like it before. This complex was particularly amazing especially the Stone chariot, once you had dodged the human poo everywhere

I loved the Vithala Temple Complex. The complex houses Stone chariot, musical pillar, etc. which is simply awesome. From main gate either you walk till the campus which may be quite a lot in sun. If you want to avoid that there are electric cars, which are paid, that take you to the place. On the route to the complex,... More

Hampi has another 2 names - Vijayanagara (Historical Name) and Kishkindhya Nagari (Mythological Name - Place of Bali & Sugriv) Most of Hampi's attraction are in location only. Please take a... More
