After breakfast, start your exploration tour of the exceptional ruins of the Vijayanagar Empire at Hampi, one of the largest Hindu empires in Indian history. On first sight the fortress appears impregnable and it was under this protection that the Vijayanagar kings had the security to construct an amazing array of palaces and temples. Founded in 1336, although there may have been a settlement as early as the 4th Century AD, Hampi flourished under the Vijayanagars’ and its monopoly of the spice and cotton trade has latterly led to some assessments that the wealth of Hampi rivaled that of Rome. Sacked by the Muslims in 1565 the city was largely destroyed and abandoned, however, proof of the city’s former greatness is still very much in evidence and despite much of the site now being largely in ruins it is still exceptionally impressive. The Vitthala Temple, a World Heritage Monument, is one of the oldest and most intricately carved temples of its kind whilst the Royal Enclosure houses the small Hazara Rama Temple and the beautiful Lotus Mahal. Also of interest are the stone chariot and the Queen’s Bath which highlights the exceptional skill and knowledge of water engineering which is further evident in the excavated system of aqueducts, sluices, tanks and canals. If you wish you may like to walk along the river, cross it in one of the coracles which serve visitors and locals alike or visit the imposing Virupaksha Temple at the head of the Hampi bazaar.
