  • Posted Feb 5, 2018
Hampi is a well known place among the foreigners and it is a beautiful old city of rocks and great architectures. You can find lot of temples, scriptures and statues dating to centuries back and the architecture of the temples is simply astounding. It is a great place to go for a solo/group tour. Also, you can try a lot of different cuisines at affordable rates.

"A place that has something to offer to everyone"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 30, 2018
Temples for olds, rock climbing for adventure lovers, nature for leisure, ancient sites for history lovers. This place is a magic.
Stay in the hidden home stays in little villages if
You actually wish to explore the raw and
Beautiful nature of this place.
Coracle rides, dip in the backwaters, exploring villages on mopeds or scooty, mythological essence and ancient ruins, madness on hippie island, stay and eat with locals in a homestay and buying those beautiful anklets are a few must do things here

"Virupaksha temple"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 30, 2017
One of the prime locations of Hampi, Virupaksha temple is a must visit.
Around it in a walking distance are other locations like Banni Mahakali temple, Vittala temple, Monolithic Bull. A little faraway is Monolithic Narasimha, Monolithic Shivalinga, SaasivekaaLu Ganesha, KaDalekaaLu Ganesha.
Take a boat or teppa from there, is Virupapura Gaddi where there are nice restaurants, **** fields and more temples. Nice place to relax and chill out.

"Finding your inner peace amidst majestic ruins"

  • Posted Oct 29, 2017
Hampi in one word is culturally majestic, right from the ruins that highlight times gone by of the various dynasties that ruled Vijayanagar, to the myriad sights it has to offer within a short radius. A cross across the river Tungabhadra lets you in on one of the best sights with sprawling fields by the river and an enchanting temple of Lord Hanuman, while on the other side awaits many a reminders of the riches of the various dynasties that ruled southern India.
For the discerning traveler with even a remote curiosity about India's history, Hampi is a must visit, if only it for a weekend getaway from the bustling madness of nearby Bengaluru.

"The stone age abode"

  • Posted Oct 26, 2017
The moment I entered Hampi I felt as if I had entered a different era. Away from the hustle of city life this place gives you a sense of peace. The huge boulders, their uneven carvings, beautiful terrains, the smell of fresh jaggery, the mystic monuments has a charm of its own and cannot be compared to anywhere else.
Hampi is well connected with buses & trains. The people there are very helpful and accommodation is cheap too. Either you want to stay in a luxury hotel or in a budget accommodation all options are open. Though for movong around the city for sightseeing I would prefer an autorickshaw ride as the lanes are pretty narrow and with auto its easier to commute. You can also hire cycles to move around places if you are keen on cycling.
Overall it is a must visit and just cannot be described in words. You need to go and visit Hampi to get a feel our ancient era.
