Of all the structures and sites that have been renovated and open to visitors, this is hands down the best. Encapsulating the best architectural styles of the Vijayanagar period, this is truly the high watermark of the empire. Thankfully, very well maintained by the ASI this is in my book the number 1 thing to do in Hampi. Suggested route... More

Hampi was one of my favourite destinations in India - I regret not spending more time there. This temple complex is one of many architectural gems to be found in this incredible landscape - this is the place that houses the iconic stone chariot. I would recommend hiring a driver to take you round the different sites, particularly if you... More

Built at the peak of Vijayanagara Empire, the temple was built on a greenfield site and enhanced and augmented by successive kings. Unlike the Virupaksha temple, this one however, is not in active use now. It is a grand complex comprising of a grand avenue lined with bazaar and water tanks leading to the temple complex and smaller structures around... More

Vitthala Temple Complex is without doubt, the greatest architectural achievement of the Hindu kingdom of Vijayanagar. The Vijayanagar Empire was created in defence of the Hindu civilization in the Deccan and south India which was under attack from the Islamic invaders from the north. The Empire was created to counter the onslaught of the Bahmanis and their Muslim allies in... More

This temple is one of the most, if not the most important attraction at Hampi. This attraction is truly a landmark in terms of architectural design and heritage. Engaging the services of a guide is recommended to understand the tales and mythology behind the stone carvings. The stone chariot is a great photo-op location. While worship is not active at...
