Dasara Dibba, Hampi

4.4
#15 of 32 in Sightseeing in Hampi
Landmark Tourist Spot
Climb to the top of Dasara Dibba, which resembles a giant three-tiered stage and represents one of the tallest of the World Heritage-listed monuments at Hampi. The empire's rulers used this immense stone platform to view military parades and royal processions held during important festivals. The 12 m (40 ft) tall structure features carved details across all three tiers, as well as two stairways embellished with images of soldiers, horses, and elephants used in military campaigns and formal processions. Use the stairways to access the top of the platform, and take in sweeping views of the surrounding complex and its many impressive buildings.

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.
