Vitthala Temple, Hampi
(4.7/5 based on 650+ 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. Put Vitthala Temple into our Hampi vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 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.
