This temple seemed to be more than what met the eye. With a structure that seemed to have supported water passages and fountains, and expansive dance or other utility halls, this seemed to be more of an entertainment or community centre of yore rather than just a temple.

We drove to each site and then there was an electric ride to the big temple. I was really amazed that this site could be done this way.

Though the entire Hampi region spells b-e-au-t-y, these ruins transport you into a developed world that once flourished. Amazing - words cant describe the peace and tranquility that one feels amid these structures.

This is such a incredible temple in Hampi I've visited.This temple has musical pillarsI mean u can create sound by thumping your fingers on it it has a chariot made of stone and such perfectly build structure. My heart was pained to see that this is almost half ruined. It should be restored to its full capacity
