Vittala is a must see in Hampi. It is bit of a trek from Hampi and best visited with a guide. The hall of musical pillars is sadly under renovation and is closed to visitors for next few months.

This contains a statue of Garuda, which is the Vahana of Vithala ( Vishnu ) The main hall though is under reconstructions and therefore out of bounds. You can however take pictures from outside. The temple is carved with scenes from the Ramayana. Advisable to... More

Vithala temple is the most extravagant architectural showpiece of Hampi. The highlight of Vithala temple is its impressive pillared halls and the stone chariot.

For visiting this temple you have to buy tickets and wait for the battery operated carts to take you to the temple. Please remember to preserve your tickets for your return journey or else you will have to walk back. Quite a walkable distance if you like walking. The temple is in ruins but certain parts are still well preserved... More

A mere human being cannot express this perfection of art. Be it the signature chariot of Hampi, or the Sangeet Mandap or even the relatively trivial Kitchen area. The chariot could still function with its wheels and brakes. This is the chariot of lord Vithhala and Garuda here is displayed in human form. Each pillar in the Sangeet Mandapa is... More
