“Mughal influence in Vijayanagara Architechture”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Nothing significant to see except for symetrical arches but as some other reviewers have noted, hard to imaging how the queens would have used this as it's relatively small....

Its a place where queen use to reside. Its a beautifully constructed monument. The outer arches and the interior designs are wellmade. Definite watch place in Hampi.

“Symmetry and Arches”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

The arches on the Lotus temple have a beautiful and complex design. Indo-islamic architecture again. The symmetry is also good.

“Airconditional Palace !!!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Local guides will tell you how the upper floor was filled with water and this flowed down to the lower floors pillars and cooled the building ! Sounds like a tall story. The coolness comes from the thick walls and the open sides which allows for excellent cross ventilation.
