Why Choose Hampi Vacation
‘Bygone but Beautiful’. The phrase seemingly summarises the definition of Hampi and its ruins. What was once a prosperous grand centre of Vijaynagara empire became an utterly devastated site after the invasion of Muslim sultanates in the late 15th century. Still a large number of monuments stand firmly to offer one of the most fascinating and colourful landscapes in the world. Also designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the ruins of Hampi consists of a large number of temple complexes, monuments and unparalleled infrastructure depicting Hindu religion and mythology. Located near the Tungabhadra river, Hampi attracts millions of tourists throughout the year, international and domestic alike. Ride along its uneven paths and explore the ruins while biking. Rock climbing, Cliff jumping and riding a Coracle (Round boat) are some activities to round off a completely desirable tourist destination. Hampi is still a place of religious importance with the Virupaksha temple which is dedicated to Hindu Lord Shiva. The Vithala temple, Lotus palace, the Monkey temple, and the ancient Hampi Bazaar are some other prominent landmarks beautiful enough to blow your mind.
