This is a must visit place in Hampi. UNESCO and Govt of India is maintaining it. You should take services of a good guide otherwise you will not be able to understand the importance and minute features.

This is a must visit place to learn and admire the rich Hindu culture. The ruins are reminiscent of the traditions and beliefs of the recent Hindu times. Great place to be with family. It’s pretty hot so be prepared.
