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.

  • I'm so crazy about this stunning places. You may get the see and feel sad about the systematic destruction of Hindu temples by Bijapur sultans. But somehow I feel we are lucky to see at least the remains that are being protected so well.
  • Best temple in the world to visit... Musical tone in the foundation... A must visit place in hampi
  • Go during early mornings when the temple opens or during evening around 4 to get good shots...
  • A very good architecture of yesteryear's... Those Bigoted Islamic rulers have destroyed it completely.....what a place.... a must visit....one will love it ....there are pillars used as musical instruments then.... what a beauty.....If you are a photograph enthusiast then please spend a day there capturing different moments......you will cherish it..... I plan to visit it again for sure......
  • World famous Rock or Stone Chariot, inspired by the Orisa's Konark temple, musical pillars inside Mantapa & temples, best maintaed ruins of Hampi by ASI team.. Good work.. Temple gopura at the entrance is fully destroyed yet looks majestic & spellbound and you have an electric operated vehicle to avoid pollution at just 20 rupees
