A Very Basic Travelers’ Note to Hampi

A Very Basic Travelers’ Note to Hampi

The Vijayanagar rule in the 14th Century AD of many parts of south India had Hampi as its imperial capital. The rule was marked by huge growth and economic success in the kingdom. In the current era, Hampi is a small village in Karnataka, where myriads of tourists travel annually to bask in the rich history and glory of the past. Naturally, this area is like an oasis of palm, mango and banana trees amidst rough boulders nestled by the side of the mighty Tungabhadra River.

Hampi can be a perfect holiday destination where one can simply laze around the ruins, have a decent stay and good food. Hampi can be reached by road from Hospet, the major nearby town only 13 km far.  One can reach Hospet either by train or bus. Several trains ply from Bangalore, Goa, and Hyderabad to Hospet. The bus services are also good. Hubli is the nearest airport and is 143 kilometers away. Hampi does not provide very high-end posh stays or restaurants. However, the available stays and food are quite decent and tasty.

The best part of Hampi trip is lazing around the rocks and ruins all day, on foot, bicycle, bikes or cars. Bicycles and bikes are really cheaper options for roaming around. The most important places to visit in Hampi are the temples of Vithala, Virupaksha, Achyut Raya, Krishna Deva Raya, Hazara Rama, the ruins of the Royal Enclosure, Hampi Bazaar, the hills of Hemakuta and Matanga are some to note.
