Hampi temple

A strange and magical place, Hampi is one of the most beautiful towns in Karnataka. Huge boulders are scattered across the land where ruins of the old Vijayanagar capital stand, poignant reminders of the passage of history. All the temples and buildings of Hampi are an exotic mix of Hindu and Islamic styles and the result is high vaulted domes and striking carvings. The group of monuments at Hampi were declared a World Heritage site in 1986.

The brothers Harihara and Bukka established the Vijayanagar Empire in 1336. Surrounded by the Tungabhadra River on one side and granite cliffs on the other three sides, Hampi was chosen as the capital of Vijayanagar Empire. Krishnadevaraya, was not only one of the greatest rulers of the region but also a patron to some of the finest temples and buildings in Hampi. The ruins of Hampi are extremely popular with tourists who flock here to soak in a sense of the past; and in every ‘reliving’, this seemingly dead city lives again.

Cave Temple”
It is very surprising to know that the NATURE has hidden many mysteries in it. There are many waterfalls, hillocks, beautifully carved natural stones and caves in the western ghat range. They are too beyond our imagination. One such CAVE gifted by the nature exists at the foothills of Western Ghats. The cave has Lord Rudra as deity in it.
