Monkey Temple, Hampi
(4.6/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Climb the 600 steps to Monkey Temple and see the mythological birthplace of Lord Hanuman, the monkey warrior god. Situated on top of Anjaneya Hill, the whitewashed temple overlooks the historic village of Hampi. After the strenuous climb--during which you'll most likely meet some of the resident monkeys---you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of Hampi's ancient monuments, the surrounding fields and mountains, and the rushing Tungabadhra River. All are welcome to enter the small, austere temple, pay respects to the deity, and listen to the priest tell the story of the monkey god. Do remember to take off your shoes and close the door so the monkeys cannot enter. With our world travel planner, Hampi attractions like Monkey Temple can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Monkey Temple is located on top of a hill, it is stepping up 575. the temple Itself is not much to brag about, but the view is decidedly worth the effort. Absolutely gorgeous views!

  • After a rise in 575 markets, accompanied by the monkey, a great spectacle awaits. A Hindu temple (in office) is located at the top of the Mt.-Anjana.
