Hampi temples

These are the archeological sites which will fall on the way from Kamalapuram to Anegundi. These are must visit if you are visiting Vitthala Temple.

These are the temples situated in the much popular Royal enclosure which fall on the way to Kamalapuram from Hampi. All these monuments can be covered in single trip so grouping those together.

For most of us these are just the ruins…. some named those as temples with significant importance in holy Hindu scriptures…for others it’s just a laboratory of archeological survey of India…Well, I do not know much about the archeology but I do know that Hampi is more than what we do see..

Hampi

Situated On the bank of holy river Tungabhadra,Hampi is one of the few remaining town of Vijaynagar empire, once the largest Empire of south India which ruled the region from 14th to 16th Century. Surroundings of the Vijaynagar region depict its extremely rich art and culture. Ruins of temples and forts narrate the glorious evolution of a civilization which is still persisting in this part of the world.

Vijaynagar Empire

The empire's legacy includes many monuments spread over South India, the best known being the group at Hampi. The previous temple building traditions in South India came together in the Vijayanagara Architecture style. The mingling of all faiths and vernaculars inspired architectural innovation of Hindu temple construction, first in the Deccan and later in the Dravidian idioms using the local granite. Secular royal structures show the influence of the Northern Deccan Sultanate architecture.
