Hemakuta Hill Temple Complex

This is a whole temple complex where most of them are in complete ruins and some are partly in ruins. The temples all look like Jain Temples mainly due to their beautiful architecture of typical Jain Temples but most of these are dedicated to Lord shiva, Vishnu or Lord Ganesha. As you go further, you find a beautiful ond which is now dry but the group of temples around, especially the Veerupaksha Temple complex is extensive and beautiful. The other temples are the Kalu Ganesha, Kadalekalu and Sasivekalu Ganesha. The Lakshminarasimha and Badavalli are two more attractions and there is also an old Hanuman Temple here. This is a perfect spot for history buffs and photographers.

The last destination was the Hemakuta group of temples. We reached there by the sunset. There is a cluster of temples on this Hemakuta hill. There are few abandoned temples on this hill. But each temple radiates energy and tells a story of its times when the Vijayanagara was at the pinnacle and also its vandalization and downfall.

Later we walked down to Hemakuta Temple Complex. On Hemakuta hill is also known as sunset point. But when we were at hill it was just 2.40pm. I rested for 15 min beneath some temple next to iconic hill tree which is so famous on instagram. Like other places even temples at this hill is also damaged a lot but still they quite attractive and worth to visit. Then we went for lunch at Hampi Bazar area.
