About Hampi


Hampi is located in Bellary district and since1565 to 1800 AD, various rulers reigned the land of Hampi. The history of Hampi is depicted in the stone sculptures and architectures that are scattered in all nooks and corners of this land. The dominion of the Sultans, following their victory at Talikota, was tenuous and the region was split up into small principalities under chieftains known as ‘poligars’. Aurangzeb annexed these territories. Afterwards the area was dominated by the Maratha emperors and still later by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan of Mysore . However, through all these changes, the ‘poligars’ continued to hold local authority. At the partition of Tipu’s territory in 1792, part of the district fell to the Nizam. At the further division, which occurred after Tipu’s defeat and death in 1799, the Nizam obtained the rest of it and ceded both these portions and the adjoining area to the British Empire in 1800.

Some restaurants can be found on either side of the road that leads to the Virupaksha temple. The South Indian fare served here is delectable and affordable and thus is very popular among tourists.  The food served here is also South Indian that includes idli, dosa, vada, uttappam, curd rice and the famous south Indian thali.If you are looking for a quick bite you can stop in at any one of the few bakeries that serve a wide variety of cookies, puffs and even fruit juices.


Hampi shopping is probably the best to save for the end of the traveling. Shops are all around Hampi. Most of them are outside of the Virupaksa temple and all around the temple selling clothes, jewelry, bags, scarfs, toys and all other things that attract tourists. All of these things are from different parts of India. Bargaining for the prices is highly acceptable, and it can be fun.  If you want a tailor made dress, just head to one of the shops and order one. It will be done in a day.
Hampi Bazar:-This place has a number of shops for tourist clothes, souvenirs and handcraft shops.
The Kishkinda Trusty :-The clothes are made out of natural cotton, banana fibre and silk. So, these products are the cheapest in Hampi and tourists can get them anywhere around the city.
