A Guide to The Ruins of the Vijayanagara Kingdom in Hampi- #TheGoldenChariotDiaries HolidayIQ

Day four was specially reserved for one of the most important heritage destinations in Karnataka- Hampi. The ruins of Vijaynagara empire and several temples and complexes kept us busy with their unique charm. Come, take a tour around this gorgeous heritage site.

For anyone even the least bit interested in verifying if the talks about Vijayanagara empire's wealth and prosperity were legit, Hampi is the place. Not only do you see the ruins of a culture, you feel like you're among them while walking through where they used to store water, sell diamonds and rubies on the streets or even have food and bath! You'd definitely require more than a couple of days to soak in the essence of this place.


Started our day with this stunning Ganesha Temple and a terrific view from the Hemkuta Hill.


Another breathtaking view from the famed sunset point- the best place to watch sunrise and sunset in Hampi.


The intricate carvings on the gate of Virupaksha Temple were mesmerising in the afternoon sun and we were lucky to capture the details in our frames.


We then moved on to see the aqueducts and ruins of King's palace which spoke of the meticulous planning of these structures.


The symmetrical and stunning Elephant Stable was a unique attraction and next in the places we visited.



The much-awaited trip to Vitthala Temple followed next with us getting a chance to capture the landmark chariot of Hampi.


A gorgeous sunset laced view of the Tungabhadra river to end our sightseeing tour for the day.

HolidayIQ reviewer Viveak says, "UNESCO world heritage site. Yes, it really deserves. Each stone has a history. Can get a guide recommended by tourism office near bus stand or if you want alone, can get a book which they sell in stationary in market and read through it. Try food in mango tree."
Adds HolidayIQ reviewer Shazneen, "When we talk of Hampi as a tourist destination we are taking of several things to do and places to see. The most talked about is the Hampi ruins. Spread over a considerable area.Depending on your interest you could spend from 1 day to even a week there."
HolidayIQ reviewer Jasmeet says, "We had a three days trip to Hampi from Pune. As expected the climate was very hot even during the 1st week of December. On first day we visited the Royal enclosure which had a lot of monuments to offer. Must visit was the stepped well, elephant stable and Hazara Rama Temple."
