This is a must visit.....Gives you an idea of how culturally rich the Vijaynagar kingdom was! After visiting this place, I just wanted to go back in time and get an experience of this place in its hay days - the huge bazaars , trading activity, dance , music etc. etc.

Excellent architecture, a huge Temple complex, quite far from Hampi city and you could reach here by hiring an auto or a taxi. All motor vehicles are banned around 1km radius. The government operated battery carts take you to the entrance. The stone chariot and music mantapa are the main attractions. Architectural marvels!

Visit to Hampi will not be complete without visiting magnificent temple complex of Lord Vithala. It is one of the most magnificent monument describing the architectural and technological marvel. Expertise in acoustics and finesse in technology is the reflection of architectural showpiece. The most glaring example is the monolithic rock cut chariot. It is truly a symbol of Hampi. The...

Take a guide to understand the place. Very nice if you enjoy architecture and have a knowledge of history. Slightly boring for the kids

The architecture is something to be appreciated and admired, When the facilities were minimum, the artisans have worked tremendously.

For a detailed guidance on Hampi trip, see my other review titled "Hampi trip -- guide for a traveler (not a tourist)". As far as Vithala is concerned, this is one of the most visited sites of Hampi. It's a huge temple complex with Hampi's characteristic architecture. The stone chariot is within the complex which is often shown as the... More
