historic ambience of this site.

The rooftop of this temple gives you the best panoramic view of Hampi and the surrounding countryside.
The Vithala Temple is one reason why Hampi is so famous all over the world. The temple is dedicated
to Lord Vishnu. The main attraction in the temple is Stone Chariot standing in the courtyard and
a 56-pillared hall. It is said that the pillars produce musical sounds when they are stroked.
One of the finest examples of Vijayanagara sculpture at Hampi is the famous monolithic
Lakshmi Narasimha (the fourth incarnataion of Vishnu). Narasimha is seated on the giant coils of Adishesha,
the guardian snake of Vishnu, with its seven hoods acting as a canopy.
On the banks if the river there are numerous shrines and idols associated with the worship of Lord Shiva.
Ghats are along the river where locals come to bath and wash cloths, in the early morning and late evening Lakshmi, the temple
elephant gets her bath in the river too.
For crossing the river there is 1 Motorized Ferry boat and Coracle boats, they are large flat basketlike crafts for ferrying people, sheep and goats.
The Virupaksha Temple.
Located at the foot of Hemakuta Hill. The temple, often called Pampapathi temple, is the most sacred
of the temples of this place. It has an uninterrupted history from about the 7th century. The temple contains the shirines
of Lord Shiva, Pampa and Bhuvaneshwari.
Hanuman Temple (Monkey Temple).
Heading to Anegondi, across the Tungabhadra River from Hampi is the Hanuman Temple,
perched high on top of Anjaneya Hill. You can easily spot this hill from a distance as the temple is whitewashed
and a white trail of around 600 steps zigzag all the way to the top. The views from the top are extraordinary.
These stables housed 11 royal elephants in separate compartments.
The central stable has a ruined brick-built upper story, the five stables on either side
have pyramidal or fluted-domed roofs, a beautiful example of Hindu-Muslim style of architecture.
