    About

    Hampi is an ancient village located amidst the ruins of the erstwhile Vijayanagar dynasty and now a  district.  Situated in the northern region of Karnataka in Hospet, on the banks of Tungabhadra river, Hampi is a UNESCO world heritage site. (As, of 2018, there are 37 UNESCO World Heritage Site in India. Which gives us the 6th large number of World Heritage Site across the world. Read here: The Criteria for Selection as UNESCO World Heritage Site Read here: UNESCO World Heritage Site List) It was the capital of the Vijayanagar Empire and houses the ruins of palaces, temples and the royal buildings of Vijayanagar Emperors. 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. Hampi is the most Google-searched tourist place in 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.
