Based on the traditional Hindu style temple tradition, the architecture reflects the imprints of an influence of the Vijayanagara Empire. This influence meant the use of natural resources like granite and schist rock, that still after thousands of years beautifully holds together the majestic pillars and the pavilions.
The Living Monument and it’s people, holding together generations of heritage, stories, and experiences that keep the lifeline of Hampi alive.
An Ancient Little Boat: The Coracle ferries people back and forth everyday braving the currents and at times they are able to ferry across fifteen or twenty people on every ride.
