An important shrine and a hindu temple, this is located right in the middle of the royal omplex in Hampi. This temple was once the private temple of the Vijayanagara rulers and the others following them. The temple is now in ruins but the bas and the relics here still look beautiful. These are the specialties of the temple and on them are depicted the whole story of the epic Ramayana. The temple was built during the 15th Century during the rule of the Vijayanagara Ruler Devaraya II and initially had nothing but a single mandap. Later all the pillars and designed structures were added to make this temple look more beautiful. The name Hazara Rama came from the fact that there are a large number of idols and structures of the deity here. Also there are relics of royal scenes, horses, elephants and other royal animals. Surrounding this temple is a sprawling lawn which is a popular spot of tourists especially during the afternoon.

To visit these places you can hire an auto,bicycle,car or scooter depend upon your choice. Hire a guide. A well knowledgeable guide is must when you visit the ruins because staring at the rocks will not make any sense though there are some information written in front of every ruin, still you need a guide if you are really into it. Don't visit places between 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm as it gets really hot.Sunset at Malayavanta Raghunatha Temple-again its better view of sunset than Monkey hill.Day2:
