It bears testimony to the grandeur and wealth of the Vijayanagar Empire. Hampi is one of the major historical sites of the state and country.  Hampi has a history dating back to thousands of years enriching the lives and culture of the state and country.  Bound by River Tungabhadra on one side and hills on the other, Hampi is one of the most iconic tourist attractions of Karnataka.

Considering the stories left by Persian and European travelers of that time, Hampi was the most prosperous, wealthy, and the grand city in India. Interestingly, by 1500 CE, Vijayanagara-Hampi was the world’s second-largest medieval-era city after Beijing. Without a second thought, it was India’s richest.
