Vijaya Vittala Temple
Vijaya Vittala, a 16th century temple is one of the most stunning structures in India. This temple showcases immense creativity and architectural expertise. Vittala temple is one of the only 3 temples in India that has a stone chariot. Don’t miss the musical pillars and the stone chariot when you visit here.
The Anjaneya hill is quite the climb with 570 steps but you get rewarded with most gorgeous panoramic views of Hampi from here. It is said to be the birthplace of Hanuman. I went here early in the morning, caught the most magical sunrise from here.
Virupaksha temple is one of the oldest temple’s in India. This beautiful temple was built in the 7th Century. Although surrounded by ruins, this temple still stands strong in all its glory.
