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.

    SYED BENIYAS

    Vijayawada

    Syed's 3 days trip to Hampi

    Hotels are just average. There is no good breakfast facilities in both the hotels. Also very limited breakfast at church in hotel 29, Bangalore. i never recommend this hotel to anyone. There is no hotwater facility for bathing at Mysore hotel during evening time while we checked in at 8.30pm. After repeated requests and complaints they had provided hot water for bathing.breakfast in the morning also too late. They provided it after 9.30pm. Bannerghatta national park safari trip, wonderla amusement park at Bangalore, night dinner at umpire restaurant near to our hotel, Brindavan garden and mysore palace are memorable moments in that trip.
