Dasara Dibba, Hampi

(4.4/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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.
