If there is just one place you can visit in Hampi it should be this. It's a hard choice given there are so many stunning places in Hampi but this complex is a masterpiece indeed. more »
Lovely place. The ruins give you an ecstatic view and the mind awes to think what the complete site might have been like. A two-side pass for Rs. 20 is available to and from the temple main area and the parking. You can walk the way as well, it is around 1km. Worth visiting this place. Very beautiful architecture and archaeological work.
You can either walk from main road till temple or can take electric cart by paying nominal charges. Marvelous architecture. All intricate details are mind blowing. Density variation in the rocks producing different nodes of music. The space itself creates lot of positive energy. The Tungbhadra river bed is just behind the temple.
