The Hemakunta Hill houses a temple complex, many of them dedicated to Lord Shiva. Situated in the southern side of Hampi, these temples are amongst the oldest and most ancient ones that still remain in Hampi. Many of these temples were constructed between the 9th and 14th Century, therefore even predating the famous Vijayanagara Empire that ruled Hampi. The temple complex contains more than 35 distinct temples and even their architectural styles are distinct from the rest of the temples that can be found in Hampi. Many of these temples have faced the ravages of time and some lie in ruin although the Archaeological Survey of India is doing work to restore them to their past glories.
