Hemakuta Hill Temple Complex, Hampi
(4.7/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Visit the southern section of the Hampi World Heritage Site to see Hemakuta Hill Temple Complex, home to several shrines predating most other structures within the important archeological locality. While some of the oldest ruins on this hill date back to the 10th century, others were added after the establishment of the Vijayanagara Empire and include fortified walls designed to protect the area from potential invaders. Pay special attention to the monumental sculptures representing Narasimha, an incarnation of Vishnu as a man-lion. In addition to its historical and architectural significance, the hill also serves as an ideal lookout point, providing sweeping views over the ancient capital's bazaar. Use our Hampi trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Hemakuta Hill Temple Complex and other attractions in Hampi.
