Vithala Temple Travel

Vithala Temple, renowned as the most impressive monument of Hampi, which blows the mind of a visitor by its beauty, is located in the southern bank of the Tungabhadra river.

The temple, known for its extensive sculptured work and a 16th century art piece, is decorated by ornate pillars and the carvings. It shows perfectly the wonderful artistic skills available in the empire of Vijayanagar.

This temple is known for its amazing musical pillars - a total of 56 pillars - which produce an echo of a note when tapped. There is also a striking chariot carved out of a stone with rotating wheels, in the back lawn of the temple.

Built during the rule of King the second Devaraya, it shows the high perfection of the Vijayanagara style. The temple is celebrated for its pretty excellent carved mandapas and gopurams.
