This is Hampis best kept secret. Walk towards Matunga hill and reach the temple. We found the place totally empty and, the view of hills against the ruins were amazing.

Followed by Courtesan Street is the Zanana Enclosure, a huge complex but not very well maintained. The attraction has got very less footfall compared to other sites in Hampi.

It's a little bit damaged, but even with that, the rest is so well conserved that you can imagine how it was centuries ago at they high power. It's little and nice, and near the bazar

The temple is great and is not crowded. There is a passage from the temple to climb to the Veerabhadra temple, but I did not go up as it was too hot. The temple is ruined and empty, but beautiful. I reached the temple by walking from the Rangatha temple. There is a large ruined market on the 2 sides... More

Achutaraya Temple complex is located along the Thungabadra river. This place can be reached only by walk from Virupaksha to Vittala temple complex. In front of the Achutaraya temple complex is the huge bazar like in front of any big temple complex and there is a dried up temple tank. The temple has two praharams and the gopurams are almost...

It is believed that Achyutaraya the younger brother of Krishnadevraya has built this temple during 1513-1538.This temple is very close to the Kalyana Mandap on crossing the second gate.We can find monolitithic twin pillars where on the sides of the pillars the story of DASHAVATAR has been carved out.

The thing about Hampi is that most temples tend to start looking similar after a while, which is not a bad thing in itself but then it can start eroding your 'want' to visit them. Don't miss Achyutaraya on that account though. The best view of the place is when you're walking to it at the foot of Matanga Hill...the... More

enjoyed the walk from the bazaar up and over the hill to this temple which not many people seem to visit so it was very quiet and peaceful. Contrasting in detail from Shiva temple. lovely walk back along the river

Saying too much would be much unsaid, precisely. I'd rather limit my description to these pointers below and leave your yet-to-be-experienced travel - crisp. This temple and its encompassing silence (that is actually attributed to less visitors) is best experienced when visited early morning. We took the route from Hampi Bazaar, climbing up rocks & stones and with each climb... More
