Stone chariot is a delight to the eyes. Musical stone pillars now being protected and can only be seen from a distance. Electric car to reach the temple complex is a good option.

Slowly decaying, this magnificent temple complex still retains much of its former glory. One of the few places where an entrance fee is required, the Vitthala Temple is a must-see site when in Hampi.
