Hampi Travel Guide

Dotted with numerous temple complex ruins of the Vijayanagara Empire, Hampi is located near the River Tungabhadra. There is a lot about Hampi - the UNESCO World Heritage site that fascinates vacationers. The place is one of India’s most known archaeological destinations. Its temples, monuments, and monolithic sculptures magnetize tourists from far and wide to admire its exceptional workmanship. The historical ambience of this place is enhanced with the rugged landscape that attracts vacationers to take up various exciting activities along with sightseeing. This account provides essential information about Hampi that one might require prior to visiting it. So, those looking forward to visit this city shortly will find this concise and crisp Hampi guide.  

Weather: Located in one of the southern states of India – Karnataka, Hampi experiences sweltering summers, pleasantly cold winters, and pleasurable monsoon. Hampi weather is the best during winter months from November to March. Monsoons, from July to September also present a pleasant time to visit the heritage site. However, one needs to be extra cautious while walking on the boulders. Hampi weather in June is scorching, so it is suggested not to venture out during this summer month in Hampi.   

Food: Hampi serves a delectable variety of culinary treats to its visitors. Since Hampi is known for the religious places non-veg is difficult to get. The most savored Hampi food includes badanekayi (stuffed brinjal), ellu chutney, ranjaka (a type of chutney), kosambari (dal, cucumber, carrot dish), bele kaalu (sprouted dal), and saaru (a type of soup). Hampi special food comprises two or three desserts and fried dishes such as Aambode or Bonda with a meal. Meals are considered completed when rice curd is served at the end.

Nightlife: Hampi tourist information would be incomplete without mentioning its nightlife that takes tourists for a tour of the town at night during the Hampi Utsav or Vijaya Utsav. Visiting the ancient city beautifully illuminated is an experience to cherish. In addition to the well-lit monuments, vacationers also visit the lightened bazaars of Hampi such as Virupaksha Bazaar.

Shopping: Shopping is an important part of every Hampi travel guide that informs travelers about the must-buys from this ancient city. Stone artefacts, Lambani crafts, leather crafts, musical instruments, and banana fiber crafts are amazing gift items and souvenirs. One of the many ancient markets in this historical city - Vittala Bazar is a prominent name. Hampi Bazaar is a kilometer long street located in front of the Virupaksha temple, where local and imported goods are available. The latter can be considered as one of the ancient malls.

Festivals: Hampi details would be inadequate if festivals celebrated here are missed out on. Celebrated for three days, in the month of November, the most important festival of Hampi – Hampi Utsav, also known as Vijaya Utsav is keenly awaited. The festival involves dance, drama, music, and processions echoes the entire ancient town.  

City attractions: Hazara Rama Temple, Krishna Temple Complex, Kondana Rama Temple, and Malyavanta Raghunatha Swamy Temple speak leaps and bounds about the Hampi temple treasure. Lotus Mahal, Zenith Enclosure, Dasara Dibba, and King’s Balance are among the historical marvels of the site. The heritage place articulates the rich history about Hampi. Apart from sightseeing, Hampi is famous for various exciting activities such as staying in a hut on Hippie Island, climbing the hills to catch stunning views around, witness breathtaking sunsets, and riding a ferry on Red River with statues of the rocks.

There are some interesting facts about Hampi that add to the reasons to explore it. A few of the lesser known Hampi facts are -

Vittala Temple has 56 melodic columns or the musical pillars. What makes this Hampi temple information fascinating is the fact that these pillars create melodic sounds when tapped delicately.

The primary historical record of Hampi settlements dates back to 1st Century.

Hazara Ram temple is widely famous as there are historical objects and fossils claiming to be present since the time of Rama’s and Krishna’s era.

It is prudent for vacationers to keep a Hampi map handy that helps exploring this captivating place on their own conveniently. This unique place is truly a holidaymakers dream place to be where one can have an unprecedented holiday experience. With this Hampi tour guide, vacationers can delight in a place that has stood the test of time, presenting its glory and grandeur through its remarkable ruins.

      Arranging the trip through travel triangle was really helpful. It's a great option if you want to plan a trip at short notice. Choice of hotels was great, itinerary was good, cab was nice, driver was ok... Though it would've been better to have more communicative driver. At times we felt pushed around and manipulated. Overall good value for money... Can be improved though Having filter coffee and dark chocolate In Coorg

      The trip was great except the worst service that we received from the travel agent in last two days from travel triangle and their agent VFM holidays. Will definitely be more careful next time when I decide to travel with this company. The driver was very good. Rest all was satisfactory. The last two days of my trip was completely spoilt by the travel agent. Please don't travel by VFM holidays and especially if your travel agent is Miss Bhargavi. She promised and made tall claims and then when we actually face some issue during the trip she just didn't pick up the call. That's heights of being unprofessional.

      Based on their very good positive reviews we booked a weekend tour with them. I found the service and response of this travel agency to be excellent. I liked the way how Srishti and Jyoti follow up with me regarding my travel. I would also like to thank the driver (Govindraj) for his friendly and courteous behavior. Just rock on Travel Triangle. Nice response from Srishti and Jyoti who are the assets of Travel Triangle. Very good driver

    • Trip to Hampi

      The entire trip was handled very well... the driver was very trained and a very honest guy We visited places in ooty, mysore and Bangalore in 5 days and the trip was a total success I was able to get everything costumized as per my wishes... and even after there was a fixed itenary.. when i made changes in the trip at those instances the driver did not create any fuss and was ready to take us to any place we wanted. I had to reach my office and also had to enjoy the trip... so this specially designed package helped me cover both. Very happy and definitely recommended!!!!

      Hotel Moriz madikeri was very unhygenic. I do not recommend this hotel for family. The quality of breakfast was very poor. The service was pathetic. They provide the same bedsheet to the guest which was used by the previous guest without washing them. Overall hotel quality was unsatisfactory. The cab driver was awesome, we had a nice time in the trip. Except the hotel, rest everything was fine.

      Full tour depends on your cab driver if he not good then all tour will spoil, cab driver plan only how to save her fuel and trips, we also got a driver like that and our trip goes worst, if anybody going to book a tour please confirm with their tour operator that who can decide driver or we where we want to go.

    FAQ's of Hampi

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    While beach lovers can drive off for a gala time at Goa or Gokarna, Bangalore and Hyderabad are great for shopaholics. Other than these, there is the very fascinating Mysore that awaits with its many tales. Coorg too, is a great respite for anyone looking for a break near Hampi.

     

     

     

     

     

    Sri Venkateswara Hotel, Mango Tree, Gouthami Guest House, and Laughing Buddha are some of the best places to eat in Hampi.

     

    Duration of 2 days is ideal to explore Hampi completely.

     

    Stone artefacts, Lambani crafts, leather crafts, musical instruments, and banana fiber crafts are among the must-buys in Hampi.

     

    Best time to visit Hampi is from October to February as the temperature is pleasant. Tourists can also visit during the monsoon season, but boulders become quite slippery during the season.
