Vijaya Vittala Temple is the crowning glory of Hampi - with some of the best architecture found in sculptures and monuments. The famous Garuda Shrine is also found in the Vittala Temple Complex. This is monument is best visited with a guide who can help you understand the history.

I visited this place and was hesitant to take a guide to explain about this whole place. But took a guide half hearted. I would never regret him taking me around the temple and the kind of insights he gave me. The architecture has amazing meanings. The carvings say a lot of story about the attributes of Krishnadevaraya as a... More

I have visited this place for about 4 times but never felt bored of it. The entire vijayanagara kingdom is fascinating with wide spread monuments all over Hampi and Kamalapura. The world famous stone chariot is a must visit place. One would need about 2 full days to visit full of Hampi. Another glorious attraction around is Ugra Narasimha Temple.... More

This place has the most amazing structures and will take you back to the 15 century. Lots of walking involved, take the golf cart from the car park its worth it. We also had a guide to tell us the history and stories from the past. Lots of photos to be had.

Once you reach the place, take the battery operated vehicle to reach the actual temple. Also take a guide's service if you really want to appreciate it, otherwise its just mere rock and stones. Its amazing to see how history has been carved on stones. I was astonished by the level of knowledge and skill of people during 16th century.... More

The temple and the associated mantaps and structures in the compound are great piece of art of 15th century. The famous stone chariot structure is inside this temple compound. When we went there were maintenance happening and visitors were not allowed inside the mail temple building.

It is one of the most beautiful piece of art . Though the temple do not have the main deity in it but the carving in the Kalyan mandap... More

This is one of the best and a must visit sites in Hampi. The architecture here is really mesmerizing. The horse market outside this temple is enormous and visual delight. The main temple, which has the musical pillars was under renovation but our guide showed the kind of musical pillars in other smaller temples in the same complex. One can... More
