Achyutaraya Temple, Hampi

(4.7/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Achutaraya Temple was constructed by Achutaraya, younger brother of Krishna Deva Raya. The temple is dedicated to lord Krishna. Unlike the more commercialised Vittala Temple complex, Achutaraya temple is more natural and is straight out of the Jungle Book Movie. The street outside the temple is impressively broad!
  • The temple is in ruins despite the conservation. Built by the successor of the great Emperor Krishnadevaraya. The large colonnades of market implies the size and importance.
  • If you are an art lover, this is the place for you! Known for its rich history, Hampi is a village situated in the northern Karnataka. During the ancient times, Hampi was considered to be one of the largest and richest cities of the world. The ruins of Hampi are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Musical Pillars and chariot are main source of attraction in this temple.
