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.

    Chennai

    Vivin's 4 days trip to Hampi

    1) Cab and the driver : The cab and as well as the driver was very good. Only thing is the driver was very very slow in driving and because of that we had to miss out places and that was not the only reason also to miss the places 2) Hotels : A)Hotel Rio Meridian Mysore The hotel was very good and clean, good service and the restuarant too had a tasty food. Only one negative was the room was not sound proof, when we stayed, there was a function in the hotels party hall and it was too noisy in the room B) Welcome Heritage AyatanabCoorg Hotel welcome heritage was chosen by us. Excellent property to have a leisure stay and enjoy one whole day but it is too costly. C) Hotel La Flora Jungle hill resort One of the worst room i have stayed till date. The room was not maintained properly. The bedspreads were not clean and there were lot of insects in the room. When we asked for cleaning it they say it is a jungle resort and bring a "Hit"insect killler to clear the same. Worst stay. 3) Service travel agent : Pros : Was very helpful and response was fast. Cons : They have to check the distance between the place of stay and the sightseeing. For us it was a hectic we couldn't see all places in the itenary. The trvaellers might be new to the place they may not know the distances. Should not put 4 sightseeing places for a day in the itenary and make it as such can see lot of places in the trip. That's the only job of the travel agent. But ideally we could see only 50 percentage of the places because of bad planning. Overall the trip was smooth and good.

    The trip was well planned and good by the agent. The driver was very helpful and polite. Parampara Residency Hotel was also good.The staff were very helpful. we were able to see most of the planned visits except Madikeri Fort due to issues out of our hand but apart from that the trip was very good.

    FAQ's of Hampi

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    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.

     

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

     

    Duration of 2 days is ideal to explore Hampi completely.

     

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

    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.
