Purandaradasa Mantapa, Hampi

(4.6/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
Pay homage to a celebrated poet at Purandaradasa Mantapa, one of the smallest structures found within the World Heritage Site of Hampi. Built to honor Purandara Dasa, a legendary 16th-century poet who spent most of his life at Hampi, this little columnated pavilion sits on the banks of the Tungabhadra River and hosts annual music events. Purandara Dasa often sat on the edge of the river, working on his compositions and drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape. Experts believe the poet composed over 75,000 songs, many of which remain a living part of Karnataka's music heritage.
