The ticked 3:40 PM as we had very less time. The group walked in to the past side of “ Achyutaraya – constructed in AD 1534, this temple is an example of Vijayanagara style temple architecture in its most advanced form than any other temples in Hampi. This was one of the last grandiose temple projects executed in the capital, before the fall of the empire. The temple dedicated to Lord Tiruvengalanatha, a form of Vishnu , was constructed by a high officer in AchyutaRaya’s court and hence the name. The temple complex and the ruined market street in front of it sit in a semi secluded valley created by two hills – the Gandhamadana & Mathunga hills.
