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.

  • It is amazing to note that how sculptors sculptors of that age have created this chariot from stone. Notice the ₹50 note at the back carries at the back Katie's this picture. You must experience the musical pillars in this temple. There is a shiv Monday underground which is showered with sunlight from the top at is at small openings. Make sure you're accompanied by a local guide.
  • This was a surprise for me. I am never generally intrested in ruins and old heritage sites but this time we hired a guide and the detail and history this place had to offer was astonishing. Though it is very from access road and parking but they have buggy facilities to address that. I recommend to hire guide for ruins and any heritage site to understand the story, logic and concept behind everything
