Hampi

The ruins of Hampi, once a flourishing capital of the Vijayanagara Empire, is now one of the most sought-after destinations in Karnataka. Spread over 41 km sq along the bank of the Tungabhadra River, the Group of Monuments at Hampi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hampi is surreal. Boulder packed landscape, magical stories of the Vijayanagara Empire, the ruins, the temples, and the beautiful fields all around Hampi, collectively make Hampi one special destination in the southern part of India.

Apart from the temple side of the river, Hampi also extends to the other side of the river, also known as the Hippie side of the river. Meat or alcohol is not served on the temple side of Hampi, but some places on the hippie side serve both. One can easily move from one side of the river to the other side by riding small round boats, also known as a coracle.
