Located in a complex with Elephant Stables. It was place where queen was spending time when husband king go for war. Site was probably the most protected site. Worth to visit.

There are a number of ruins scattering the area, but the star of the show is the Lotus Mahal.The building links Islamic and Indian styles in a seamless blend. It has 2 storeys with balconies. The interior is vaulted and domed. There are fine details on the arches.
It has been beautifully preserved.

From the water cooled Lotus Mahal to the chinese inspired watchtower, including the elephant stables, this is a must on any Hampi tour
