Find the spiritual heart of the city in the ruins of Vitthala Temple, a well-preserved part of the ancient metropolis in the World Heritage-listed Hampi complex. Believed to date back to the 16th century, the temple honored Vittala, a form of Vishnu. The complex has become famous for its particularly decorative and unusual features, including a stone chariot with rotating wheels (now cemented down to prevent damage) and clusters of pillars designed to make the sound of various musical instruments when struck.

The entrance of the temple is about 20 mins walk from the ticket box, they provide at a charge green car for connection though, but it’s gonna be a wait. Have good sun protection if you prefer to walk... 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.
