Achyutaraya Temple, Hampi

4.6
An active place of worship within the Hampi World Heritage Site, Achyutaraya Temple represents one of the last architectural achievements of the Vijayanagara Empire. Consecrated in 1534, the main temple honors Lord Tiruvengalanatha, an incarnation of Vishnu. Other notable structures within the temple complex include a small shrine built in honor of Garuda, a sacred bird that served as one of Vishnu's modes of transportation. The elaborately decorated temple and surrounding structures sit in a valley between two hills, which adds a feeling of seclusion and privacy to this part of the archeological site.

  • An architectural marvel of Hampi, it's an awesome place to explore. Needless to say a great photo opportunity as well.  more »
  • Walk east from Hampi Bazaar, climb up the front steps, route across Maranga Hill and walk by the river on the north side. The former is a flat route although the distance is short, and the latter is a roundabout. You may change the route by going and returning. It was a visit around 1:00 p.m., but I was afraid that there were almost no people. It was a place that nobody noticed even if someone came out from shadows and was attacked and raised a voice.

  • One of the ancient temples with precisely carved sculptures, each sculpture has a story to tell. Rich culture and history will make know more about this place. Please take a guide to explain to the history of this place, the guides are very much knowledgeable.
  • We were thinking about skipping this one but decided against it and it turned out to be a best decision. This complex is superb. It has ruins of a huge market outside along with a Pushkarini which has the famous musical pilars of Hampi. The complex itself has carvings of different varieties which are rare to find in one place together.
