Old Palace, Hampi Overview

The Old Palace, also known as Gagan Palace, is surrounded by a fort and is in ruins as of today. It used to be the residence of the rulers of the Vijayanagara Empire and it is located in Anegondi. The building now serves to be the local administrations' building in Hampi. Built during the 16th century, this beautiful building, much like most others in Hampi was also destroyed during the Mughal raids of 1565 when Hampi fell to the Mughal invaders. The building is more than 500 years old and today, unfortunately, most of it lies in ruins but still remains a popular tourist attraction.
