About Virupaksha Temple in Hampi

Located in the state of Karnataka in Southern India, Virupaksha Temple is one of the group of monuments at Hampi, which has been denominated as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Adorned with magnificent carvings and sculptures, the temple is surrounded with structures including a pillared walkway, courtyards, entrances, and smaller shrines reflecting its eminence as a site of pilgrimage and national prestige both in antiquity and present-time.

The Virupaksha Temple built by Lakhan Dandesha under the ruler Deva Raya-2, stands as a fabled reminiscence of the Vijayanagara Empire. Formerly knowns as Pampapati Temple- a small shrine, the Virupaksha Temple was further bestowed with other structures which turned it into a temple complex glorifying the patronage and power of Vijayanagara rulers. The Virupaksha temple architecture resembles a Dravidian architecture style, with engraved inscriptions dating back to 9th and 10th century.

Situated on the south bank of river Tungabhadra, the Virupaksha Temple, is devoted to Lord Shiva as the spouse of the local deity Pampa, who is associated with Tungabhadra river. Every year, thousands of devotees and history aficionados, head to Virupaksha Temple, Hampi, to witness to the exuberant revelry of the betrothal and marriage festivities of Virupaksha and Pampa devi held in December. The famous Chariot festival is another riveting fete which is celebrated with much fervour and pomp. Undertake a trip to Virupaksha Temple, Karnataka and capture a sight of this glorious relic of Southern India.

      There are two things very important which is making any trips grateful the one is hotels & location and second one is cabs & drivers. In our case we got very nice cab and driver Mr. Naveen moorti and he served very good services to us and we satisfied with him during our trip also we are thankful to MS Bhargavi from VFM holidays she provided flexibility to us for shuffling our trip dates to one day and she was very polite and manageable. The only thing which we have disappointed the first one thing of hotel and location choosing skill we are not satisfied with hotels at all the places (Ooty,Mysore,Bangalore) except coorg. The banglore hotel was really worst in above all. so they should improve this thing rest of the thing are very good we really enjoyed during our vacation. Thanks VFM.

      It was a well arranged trip from Bangalore to Mysore (2days and 1night) by Madurai Eco Tourism. Cab: Very neat and comfortable. Driver: Velu's driving was good. But I think he should be familiar with the routes a bit more. We couldn't visit Brindavan gardens due to raining. Instead Driver suggested Srirangapatanam. We reached there by around 3:30pm. But temple opening time was 4pm. Before entering in to the temple he told we have to leave soon as he need to go another trip at Bangalore by 7:30. Since we don't want miss visiting the temple, i told him to wait for sometime. After temple opens we suddenly finished our visit asap and get back to the cab. Before reaching our home (around 11km back) driver dropped us near a metro station, and requested us to take uber or ola from there. It was very difficult for us to manage packing our luggage suddenly to shift the cab as I was travelling with my 3year old son. But since he requested we had to agree. But he is a good driver still I recommend for such trips. Hotel: (casa meridian mysore) It is a 3star oyo hotel at Mysore arranged for night stay. But their service was very disappointed. Hotel room was ok and neat enough. But restaurant food on the 5th floor was very bad. We were offered free breakfast. It was very bad quality. They were serving same curry for all dishes. Thanks. We visited First day: St.Philomina Church, Mysore silk saree shop, Mysore palace. 2and day: Chamundi hills, Srirangapatanam Thanks

      It was a very well planned trip with a great cab and friendly driver. The hotels were superb and stay was comfortable. We would definitely plan our next trip with you, if it's possible. The stay at Mountain Trail resort at Ooty was memorable. The views from the balcony are out of this world, like straight from a movie and heavenly. The food arrangement need to be strengthened.
