I had gone to Hampi for a quick weekend trip from Mumbai in November, and it was an amazing experience. The weather was nice for us to walk around the whole area for the entire day. What I found most (Read More) stunning about the place, however, was the stones lying around everywhere, seemingly ready to start rolling. The architecture of Hampi, made almost entirely from the locally sourced stones, blends seamlessly with the stones. The ruins are preserved in a fantastic condition and they are a delight to discover.

The budget of the city is quite less. You get non-luxurious accommodations like small huts or a rooftop room with a family living beneath at a price range of INR 300 - 800 whereas the luxurious guest (Read More)houses start giving room at INR 1200 only. Your meals for a day will sum up to INR 200-300 per person. Also, the bicycle rent is INR 30 per day whereas moped will cost you INR 60 per day. A 3 days trip might cost you INR 3000 per person which is utterly reasonable.

This is easily the best temple in Hampi. Located on one end of the city, The Virupaksha Temple is where most people start their Hampi tour from.

Love this place. The calm and peace you get over here is totally worth it. Pretty cheap, and makes you want to stay there forever. Keep at least a week to chill over here: "Link Hidden"

A city full of beautiful intricate architecture that is a must-visit for travelers and architecture enthusiasts alike. Some of the architectural wonders that you should visit include temples like the (Read More) Vitthala Temple, Virupaksha Temple which is a UNESCO heritage site and the Krishna Temple. The ticket costs around 40 rupees and can be used for entry into every other temple which is a very reasonable amount to pay.

A perfect place to relax after walking through all the temples Hampi has to offer. Hippie Island is filled with guesthouses and restaurants that let you live and dine being one with nature as the hip (Read More)pies say. To get here, you need to get boats that take you across as that is the easiest way and the price really depends on your haggling skills and the number of people with you. Laughing Buddha is considered to be one of the best restaurants and as you walk in, you?ll clearly understand why the island is aptly named Hippie island.

Hampi is an architectural marvel that has been built entirely from stones. It is also relevant to the Ramayana which I wasn't aware of until the guide informed us. Also, the city itself doesn't have (Read More)much to offer apart from old ruins and structure. It is also advisable to not visit the city in summers because its really hot and traveling around the city is the biggest hassle. The architecture is definitely interesting, especially the carvings. Overall, it could have been a better experience if I had visited in some other month.

Tanned bodies are your love but anything in excess is never good. Therefore, apply sunscreen every 3-4 hours! Also, Roaming in the ruins at night is not a good idea. Hampi Bazaar is an extremely safe (Read More) area, but do not wander around after dark or alone. It?s a dangerous terrain to get lost in; long-time guides have even sighted sloth bears prowling around Vittala Temple at night!

Hampi is such a beautiful, historical town dipped in tranquility. Vitthal temple is a must visit, it's so quiet& calm. The ticket costs around 40rs and can also be used at the museum and lotus mehal (Read More)the same day. All the important places are close to each other and auto-rikshaw charges are quite high, so renting a bicycle would be a better option.

- If you are visiting Hampi in the off season, between April to Spetember, check for the hotel bookings before you reach. Some guest houses and restaurants shut down during this period.
- If you a (Read More)re visitng between June to August, the coracle ferry is not functional since the river is very high then.
- Be careful of the occasional leopard and sloth bear sightings.

on Vithala Temple 3 years ago
This is the most famous temple in the Hampi region because of the iconic Stone Chariot kept there. While the temple is definitely the most well-maintained out of all of the temples in Hampi, and has (Read More)survived in the best condition, I personally didn't find it worth the hype. For me, the overall experience of walking around among the ruins of Hampi was the best part of the trip.
