Vithala Temple, Hampi Overview

The most impressive structure in Hampi, the Vithala Temple dates back to the 16th century and is a truly splendid example of rich architecture. The famous stone chariot, which has become an iconic symbol of the architecture of Hampi, is located inside the premises of this temple.

The temple complex is spread over a huge area. The main gate has an impressive arch with carvings, and opens in a large courtyard which has the famous stone chariot in the center. The main temple is located just behind the chariot and has beautiful carvings. There are also several other smaller temples inside the courtyard, all of which are definitely worth a visit. The carvings on the walls/pillars of these structures depict various gods in different forms.

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 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.
