If you visit Hampi and don't take a snap of stone chariot then its worthless. One need to go till Gajjala mantapa in their personal vehicle, then take an electric car till the venue. Electric car charge Rs 20/- per person and entry fee for the venue is Rs 30/- per person. This ticket will be valid for your Zannana... More

U should see the rush immediately to the right of Kings balance..( if... More

This site has provision for Electric buggy facility for the 1Km distance over which motor transport is now verboten/forbidden to avoid vibration damage to the heritage structures. But the infantry march proved to be more interesting option as suggested by the guide.The path leading the the complex is actually a road with horse trading market lining it. The usual Pushkarini...

A visit to this place takes one back in time. Make sure to hire a good guide to show you around & share the architectural details of this marvel or whatever is left of it. The Musical pillars & the stone chariot are the highlights of this complex. Even the Mandapas are beautiful & well preserved except for the obvious... More

With local guide you can understand it better. The remains tells great stories. Only viewing may not make it attractive.

An awesome place to be for photographing history as it stands in stone and share stories loud enough for the sentinel rocks to hear. Awesome clean place. Well done Karnataka tourism for maintaining this history intact.

So as the history is being kept as it was the vithala temple is the mark of victory for the kings and their kingdom. This temple is unique for its pillars which make different sounds when tapped on. This is truly an engineering marvel. The temple has been the most popular spots for the travellers and the stone chariot which... More

This is an example of getting stuck between the devil and the deep sea as I found nothing great about the complex. Having said that, it is unthinkable to go to hampi and not visit here as it has the stone chariot, which is the face of Karnataka tourism. Personally I did not care much about the stone chariot. Though... More
