There are series of archiectural blocks to observe on this strech. The road here is not good and having a vehicle with 180mm+ of ground clearance will make your ride a bit easier. Go here with umbrella as it gets very hot. Nice place to keep you occupied for couple of hours.

As the Bahmanis and their allies were Islamic iconoclasts who desecrated and destroyed Hindu temples, the Hindu Vijayanagar Empire built... More

We spent a weekend trip to Hampi from Bangalore and it was worth every second and rupee! Rocks abound left and right, it almost felt like we were in a Flintstones set! The place suffered a bit from foot traffic, but most of the city has remained intact. It was quite awe-inducing to go around what once was one of... More

Went to Hampi for two days at the beginning of June 2015. Because it is the end of the season, it is now crowded, on the contrary, it was quiet and peaceful. And cheaper, than it is in other months of the year. The restaurants are still open, but the choice of dishes is less than usual. For instance, israeli... More

Nothing compares with the ruins of Hampi. Just go with a good guide and revisit the glory of the Vijayanagar Dynasty.

Vijayanagara is ht heart of all the tourist attractions in hampi, rivalled only by Vithala Temple just beside it. The entire area is filled with ruins of a bygone era, a kingdom that was wealthy and powerful in their time. An edit shows in the beautiful architecture. But it shot as in every other place in Hampi. Do carry lots... More
