Achyutaraya Temple, Hampi

4.7
#9 of 19 in Historic Sites in Hampi
Religious Site Tourist Spot
An active place of worship within the Hampi World Heritage Site, Achyutaraya Temple represents one of the last architectural achievements of the Vijayanagara Empire. Consecrated in 1534, the main temple honors Lord Tiruvengalanatha, an incarnation of Vishnu. Other notable structures within the temple complex include a small shrine built in honor of Garuda, a sacred bird that served as one of Vishnu's modes of transportation. The elaborately decorated temple and surrounding structures sit in a valley between two hills, which adds a feeling of seclusion and privacy to this part of the archeological site.

Where to stay in Hampi

You'll find a number of simple guesthouses and homestays located in Hampi itself, primarily in the Hampi Bazaar district. North and south of the river, they offer comfortable rooms in modest former residential buildings. Further afield, a selection of more upmarket resorts and hotels sit on the banks of the river and the nearby lake to the northwest. Many visitors choose to stay in Hosapete, to the southwest, or the small town of Kamalapur, located just south of Hampi. Both offer a greater range of accommodations than Hampi, including hotels, resorts, and hostels.
