(4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Find the spiritual heart of the city in the ruins of Vitthala Temple, a well-preserved part of the ancient metropolis in the World Heritage-listed Hampi complex. Believed to date back to the 16th century, the temple honored Vittala, a form of Vishnu. The complex has become famous for its particularly decorative and unusual features, including a stone chariot with rotating wheels (now cemented down to prevent damage) and clusters of pillars designed to make the sound of various musical instruments when struck.

  • Now they not allowing to enter musical pillar area. Ten years back they were allowing . Musical sound produced by those pillars are amazing . And stone chariot simply great. Must visit if u are at hampi. You can't take your own vehicle after certain point there are battery car which will cost rs 10.
  • If your nationality is Indian you can visit this place for 30 INR. If you are a foreigner, they charge you 17times more, so you should pay 500 INR. I feel discriminated for visiting an interesting country. Value for money is not what I would expect, you get no guide, nothing. They just charge you 17times more because you are not Indian. This is way more than I pay for a sight like this in western world and gives the impression that Indian people are just greedy.
  • Looks nice first, but is really a bad value for the money. For foreigners it is about 17 times more expensive then usually. That is way more I pay in Germany for a really good, clean and comprehensive museum. The discrimination of foreigners in India is really disgusting. Don't go there, keep your money.
  • It'd a different feeling :) One of the must go historic place in Indian
  • Intricately carved stones, standing tall and quaint. the rains and the clouds filled it all with romantic vibes.
