Hampi, India

About Hampi

The state of Karnataka in southern India is home to the historic settlement of Hampi. There are countless abandoned Vijayanagara Empire temple complexes scattered around it. The seventh-century Hindu Virupaksha Temple is located next to the reopened Hampi Bazaar on the south side of the Tungabhadra River. Standing in front of the enormous Vittala Temple site is a carved stone chariot. The Indian sloth bear can be seen in Daroji Bear Sanctuary, southeast of Hampi.
