Hampi, the historic capital of the Vijayanagar empire in the 14th century, is now a city of ruins and a very important historic place in Southern India. Here you can have a glimpse of the majestic era, when the emperors were in power. The city was established by Harihara and Ukka in the year 1336 AD and is a UNESCO world heritage site now.
The ruins of the ancient city of Hampi are strikingly, unexpectedly, even eerily beautiful. This 16th century capital of the Vijayanagara Kingdom lies on the banks of the Tungabhadra River, surrounded by stark rocky ridges and mammoth boulders seemingly precariously balanced on each other. The vast spaces are silent, but the ruins are eloquent.

Hampi is a popular tourist destination that is the home to around 500 marvelous historic monuments. Imperial palaces, temples and forts can be seen standing in pride holding tales of the past in every brick. It is said that during the rule of the Vijayanagar empire, diamonds were sold on the streets, more specifically in a street named Pan Supaari Street. The street is now marked by the Archaeological Survey of India  for tourists to see. The 'Hampi Utsav' that takes place in the first week of November is worth a visit. It is a cultural extravaganza of music and dance and to increase visual delight, when the monuments and the ruins are lit up.

"An amazing place"
reviewed on Jun 29 2014
Hampi is an old town in north of Karnataka. The nearest railway station is Hospet and the Karnataka road transport corporation runs its regular bus service from Hospet bus stand to Hampi. It takes 30 minutes to reach Hampi from Hospet. Hampi is a world heritage site and is wonderfully preserved. It is so vast that it is almost impossible to cover whole of Hampi. However, the buildings and temples made of stones is unlike any other place in India. The vast area of land covered by these structures makes for a magnificient viewing and is beyond words.
