Lotus Mahal, Hampi

(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.
