Lotus Mahal, Hampi

(220+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Witness the charming, World Heritage-listed architecture of the only building to remain untouched during the siege of Hampi, Lotus Mahal. The structure represents a mix of Hindu and Islamic architecture, designed in the shape of a half-open lotus bud. Pyramidal towers give the building a lotus-like shape, while arches that hold up the structure represent the flower's petals. A close look at the pillars reveals exquisite carvings of birds and other artworks. During ancient times, the palace probably served as a place of relaxation for women. Use our Hampi tourist route planner to arrange your visit to Lotus Mahal and other attractions in Hampi.

  • This is a well-maintained monument and was the summer enclosure of the queen, as per our guide. The slight orange and pink hues to this monument really make this worth seeing.  more »
  • Part of an absolutely essential set (the stables of elephants, La Tour and other temples including behind the stables). The LOTUS MAHAL is a marvel! Take the time to stroll and sit on the lawn.

  • This small mahal is a real beauty. The beautiful symmetry is a sight to behold. One of the top attractions in Hampi.
  • Beautiful architecture. Kings and queens really used to live in such beautiful places. ;)
  • Beautiful architecture, amazing symmetry. Worth seeing at least once.
  • It has a well maintained garden. Now the Lotus mahal is not open for public, we can see from outside.
  • Very beautiful architecture. Every part of the structure is still in good shape.
