If any one can get a map of Hampi or with the guidance of Google map, they can reach the temple with a 30 minute walk. On the way they can see Kings Balance and few other temples and monuments too. I had a misunderstanding till i reach temple and that was from Wikipedia. It was saying the British cut... More

... describe the temple. Only after reaching the outer compound, we realised that there are buses and battery operated vehicles which takes the visitors to the temple. Private vehicles are allowed only till here. We took a bus since we had a child with us. But I would recommend walking to the place, since it isn't that far, if you... More

The Vijayanagara city, once the glorious Capital of the Vijaya Nagara Kingdom is now a shadow of its former glory ala white dwarf star. The Vittala city and its ruins look surreal and strangely entice people interested in History... The Ruins and the rock filled backdrop give the place a out worldly feel. So here's whats special about the Vittala... More

These group of monuments define Hampi. The complex include main temple, the stone chariot, congregation halls among other buildings. The architecture is amazing and the beauty of carving on the pillars are unique. We couldnt stop ourselves from clicking hundreds of photographs. You have to get down outside and travel to the complex by electric bus or the golf carts... More

This is the Best I liked in Hampi (may be vripakasha). Please not private vehicles are not allowed. The Government has a State Transport Bus or Battery operated Tempo which collect nominal charge and will drop you at this place. The Musical Pillars and Stone Chariot is must watch here.

I had visited the same place in 2004 & 2007. The condition of the temple gone down. The big bus and vendor tempo is directly going to temple but other privet vehicle are forced to stop much ahead without any valid reason.

We did not go to many places in Hampi & we came here with a very high expectations. And this place did not let us down. Starting from the beginning, you get electric car/bus to take you to this temple, Ticket cost INR 10. Entry ticket to temple INR 10, fortunately we were helped by one guide & later we... More

Its splendid and a master piece of the past. Visit it at dawn or dusk to see it at its glory. The lighting at dusk is perfect for pictures. However make sure you are early enough to see the temple complex before it gets dark and the authorities start asking you to leave

Went there with low expectations, but the ruins are truly mesmerizing. Most of the other monuments in India are parts of a historic empire but to think of a ruins of a whole city, up for discovery in Hampi is awesome. Vehicles are allowed till 1km to the complex and then you can take a battery operated vehicle of bus.... More
