HAMPI TOURS

A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE on the bank of the Tungabhadra south river, Hampi boasts the evocative ruins of Vijayanagar or the “City of Victory”. The capital of three generations of Hindu rulers for more than 200 years, Hampi reached its zenith under Krishnadeva Raya (r.1510-29) and Achyuta Raya (r.1529-42). The site, which comprises the Sacred and Royal Centres, has a superb location, with rocky ridges and granite boulders acting as natural defences. The urban core of the , city was fortified and separated from the Sacred Centre by an irrigated valley, through which ancient canals and waterways still run.
