I strongly recommend people planning to visit hampi to first visit vijaya vittala temple complex. It's actually symbolic representation of hampi. You can find the famous chariot and the ruined gopuras right here. The complex is well maintained by authorities. We went to vijaya vittala complex from hampi by hiring an auto. I suggest people those who are on a... More

The Vittala Temple is one of the most extravagant architectural showpiece in Hampi. However it's not just a temple as a township called Vittalapura existed around the main temple complex and it's a great spectacle if you go atop one of the structures around the temple at a higher ground.Whenever one googles Hampi images of a stone chariot and the...

The Vijaya Vittala Temple is a beautiful place and very very interesting. The temple is 1KM away from the parking area, so we had taken a car service of Rs.20 per person. The temple's main attraction is the stone chariot but once you take a guide, the temple is much more interesting. There are paints (which are on the stone... More

Amazing architecture. The way to temple is 1km and they also run a car service for a ticket of 20 rs return. While you reach the temple you will find many attractions in between like the pushpakarni. There is a separate entry ticket to the temple and you need to buy tickets outside the temple. Oh i forgot there is... More

This temple is most famous for the stone chariot. However there is so much to see, that the stone chariot is but just another part of it. Once you enter the Compound, there are battery operated vehicles which will take you to the temple. You could pay 20 rs and take that, else walk to the temple. The road is... More

Hampi was the capital of the Vijayanagar empire, which was, at one point, the most powerful empire in South India. Vittala Temple, in its scope and architectural intricacies reveals a glimpse of the world and civilization that once existed here. It is essential to get a guide who knows what they´re doing as that will really add to the depth... More
