Things to do
Highlights of Hampi
Tour the ‘king’s balance,’ the stunning ‘queen’s bath’ with its arched corridors, and lotus shaped fountains; visit the two storied Lotus Mahal, the huge Elephant Stables, the mesmerizing musical pillars at the Vitthal Temple, the awe inspiring Stone Chariot, the Virupaksha Temple and the monolith of Ugra Narasimha.
2h-Visit to Kishkinda Trust
Visit the Kishkinda Trust, an NGO in Annegundi village, near Hampi. Watch as local rural women prepare different articles using materials like bamboo, banana coir, etc. Take a ‘coracle’ (small lightweight boat) ride across to the other side of the Tingabhadra River; then drive about 20min to reach here.
