Find the spiritual heart of the city in the ruins of Vitthala Temple, a well-preserved part of the ancient metropolis in the World Heritage-listed Hampi complex. Believed to date back to the 16th century, the temple honored Vittala, a form of Vishnu. The complex has become famous for its particularly decorative and unusual features, including a stone chariot with rotating wheels (now cemented down to prevent damage) and clusters of pillars designed to make the sound of various musical instruments when struck.

  • Really loved this place..a place to admire the Indian culture.when seeing each sculpture I feel proud 2 be a Indian. When u visit this place do ask a guide to accompany you so that you could get a clear cut idea of each area n why when questions will be answered properly...loved this place... surely this place will fill your heart with memories
  • A beautiful architectural example of ancient India. The structures are intricately carved and is a joy to walk around. Luckily there aren't much restrictions on places that you can enter so you can really explore. May get crowded during weekends, but that doesn't take away from the charm of the place. A must visit if in Hampi.
