Trip Planner:   Asia  /  India  /  Karnataka  /  Bellary District  /  Hampi  /  Lotus Mahal
Witness the charming, World Heritage-listed architecture of the only building to remain untouched during the siege of Hampi, Lotus Mahal. The structure represents a mix of Hindu and Islamic architecture, designed in the shape of a half-open lotus bud. Pyramidal towers give the building a lotus-like shape, while arches that hold up the structure represent the flower's petals. A close look at the pillars reveals exquisite carvings of birds and other artworks. During ancient times, the palace probably served as a place of relaxation for women. With our online itinerary creator, Hampi attractions like Lotus Mahal can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Such a wonderful place. Still the structures are mostly intact. Well kept. There are many things to see in the same location, viz elephant stable, camel Stables, watch tower, Museum etc. Your camera will be very busy. A single entry ticket is valid for entry into two other location. This is a composite one.
  • It is a beautiful place, surrounded by a lawn. The best time to visit would be in the morning, and on workdays, as the place is crowded during weekends. Lotus Mahal is part of most of the Hampi itineraries, however, if it is not, make sure you visit it.
