History of Hampi
One of the most affluent cities of India in its heyday, Hampi is home to beautiful temples and is still a place of religious importance.
Evidence of Emperor Ashoka’s minor rock edits indicate that this area was part of the Ashokan kingdom during the 3rd century BC. Prior to this, Hampi is believed to have been under the control of the chiefs of Kampili, a small town now situated 19km to the east of Hampi. With so many places to visit in Hampi, the town is always quite populated, even to this day.
