Hampi is worth to visit. There are many interesting places temples or monuments are awesome. I met the good driver in front of the hotel. He offered the plan to travel for 2 days and with reasonable price his service is impressed.I would recommend his name is Srikanth. For more information you can call him by phone 948-3072583 or visit his Facebook Hampi Srikanth

Wonderful stone carvings. Visit early morning to avoid crowds. Major attraction are stone chariot and mandapas. Take Kampa bhupa path from hampi center to reach this temple.

This is the only temple where Gods worship is happening. This temple was not destroyed by the invaders. so you could see the beauty of the architect. Don't miss to watch the inverted gopuram right at the back side of the temple. Have a guide they will take you around.

Vithala temple complex is one of the most important sites in Hampi. It comprises of vijaya vithala temple, the famous stone chariot which is on the currency notes, couple of sabha grah and a huge mandapa.

Vijaya vithala temple has no diety and no worship is conducted now. Vithala temple is now in pandarpur, maharasthra. The temple has a underground pradakshina.

The architecture, sculptures and the work in the temple is amazing. The carvings on the pillars, especially two sided carvings, 3 shaped carvings, musical stone pillars are all amazing. Need minimum of couple of hours alongwith a trained guide to understand the place. There is no climb in the temple, and can be easily visited by senior citizens also. Must visit.

If you are in Hampi, you must visit this. This is one of the most beautiful temples in Hampi. The stone chariot is the main attraction which is present on our Rs. 50/- currency note as well.
The temple has beautiful architecture and a lot of history. You can hire a guide to explain the details and it will help you understand.

It’s THE monument to visit when in Hampi. This place has so much history behind it. Should definitely take a guide with you or take the services of one of the temple guides. They charge 500 for an hour of the tour. Since the main 56 musical pillars are not accessible, guide can show you the pillar music magic in another Mantapa.

The car parking is ~1 km away from main temple because the structure started sustaining damage due to vehicle vibrations. You can pay 10 rupees one way and climb a battery operated cart. Or walk along the unpaved (but even) road and also enjoy the 3 small monuments along the way.

We walked while going and enjoyed the tow mantapas and a pushkarni (water body). While coming back we chose to take the battery cart/buggy as it was quite sunny

There is hardly any signal there so buying tickets via phone isn’t possible. Definitely carry cash for purchasing tickets (near the temple entrance)

The washrooms and near the car parking and they are pay per use.

The complex houses the world-famous Vijaya Vithala Gudi and many more attractions. I would suggest engaging a government authorized guides so that you get to know all the details of this wonderful temple. The temple houses the famous chariot (which you can see printed on the Rs. 50/- Indian Rupees currency) which is the center piece of attraction for all tourists. With the guide you can understand clearly all the intricacies of this beautiful architecture and how the artisans have chiseled some fantastic designs and also with so much of thought for various purpose. Some examples are the 50 odd pillars in the main complex which when tapped in the right way can emit exact sound of that instrument that has been carved at the bottom of the pillars!! Similarly, one can see the intricate bangle designs chiseled on stones or for that 100+ years old champak tree which looks very attractive. To get to the complex, one needs to walk about 1km+ or take a electric cars that run at good frequency. Ticket is Rs 20/- From Vitthala temple, you can walk further back side to other temples like Kothandarama temple, Varaha Temple, Matanga Hill for Sunrise/Sunset views or for a coracle ride on the Tungabadra river. There is a old path with indications to even Virupaksha temple from Vithala temple complex.

Each one of these pillars, give you a different musical note, of all the musical instruments, as per the guide. We could'nt check, since it has been warded off . Nobody can touch, only see. Some co -travelers have damaged the pillars.
