Admire the austere and grandiose World Heritage Site of Group of Monuments at Hampi--the remnants of a vast city of riches, the last capital of the Hindu kingdom. In the 16th century the Deccan Muslim confederacy conquered Hampi, only to abandon it later. Today, tour the city to witness the ornate temples, a royal complex, a bazaar, civic buildings, the Islamic quarter, and other infrastructural ruins that have enthralled travelers for centuries. Bring plenty of water on your excursion. Visit the website for a map of the attraction.

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.
