The battery card take you to the main complex and when you arrive there, you wonder at the marvel in front of you.

This is the must visit temple in Hampi. Either take the coral boat ride from Virupaksha or go directly by car, rickshaw. The 5 mandaps are very intelligently built with architecture concepts that depict unmatched superiority. There are pillars which are scientifically built such that they create sounds of different musical instruments. Try this yourself, its awesome. The chariot is... More

Vittala Temple Complex:This is perhaps the most famous and well-known among the ruins of Hampi. The iconic stone chariot in the vicinity of this temple complex is a symbol of Karnataka Tourism. Of late, floodlights have been installed in the temple complex that provide illumination at dusk, thereby adding to the grandeur of the architecture.

Well managed site and preserved monuments. This complex has temples, outside market and kings balance on the back of it which are worth visiting. it would take at least 2-3 hours to explore the place. the temple is carved in detail, mostly on Ramayana tales. Vehicles do not go close to the complex. the golf carts / public transport bus... More

Reminisce India's glorious past with this magnificent ruin. We visited this site with 'Explore Hampi's' very well curated tour. Look for the Russian Joker n Mongolian warrior carvings - pre 21st century globalisation. Impressive India!

You can't visit India and not see this. What Hampi has to offer is unique, and please take a guide to explain all the little details. If you are familiar with the Ramayan and the Mahabharat, all the stories carved into the sculptures will enthrall you. The architecture, in places, is an amazing blend of different religions, which In itself... More
