Hampi - " Vitalla Temple " - Lost Paradise


“ There is proper Trail which lead you in to Vitalla Temple from Achyutaraya – It will take 15 to 20 Min walk along Tungabhadara river. You reach back side of Vitalla Temple. The Massive structure as Single Entrance , it pulls your eyes and heart . The epicenter of Hampi’s attractions, Vittala Temple is the most extravagant architectural showpiece of Hampi. Vittala, after whom the temple is known, is a form of lord Vishnu.

This aspect of Vishnu was worshiped in this part of the country as their cult deity by the cattle herds. The temple was originally built in the 15th century AD. Many successive kings have enhanced the temple campus during their regimes to the present form. Yon can even see the remains of a township called Vittalapura that existed around this temple complex. The highlight of Vittala temple is its impressive pillared halls and the stone chariot. The halls are carved with an overwhelming array of sculptures on the giant granite pillars.


The stone chariot located inside the campus is almost an iconic structure of Hampi. “ As you Enter the Lost Paradise – the Beautiful chariot pulls our hearts to it place where it stands… The Best part of the Temple is each Pillar if you know it gives different Ragas of the Music and it treat to eyes and Heart. “This place is famous to see in the evening” they close the temple at 5:30 PM”. When the clouds comes down in the Evening, The Bluish & pinkish sting background with Temple is Treat to the Eyes.

 Thanks to “Basc” – Bangalore Ascenders for arranging such beautiful trip.
