Dated in history as a settlement much older than Hampi, this rock-strewn terrain is evident of its simple and serene past. If the legends were to be believed, then the sayings have it that this was the mythical kingdom of Kishkinda, a place fought for by the mighty monkey King Vali (or Bali), while in a jealous rage with his brother Sugreeva- a boastful tale in the great Indian texts of the epic Ramayana. Historically, it has been studied for some of the oldest cave drawings, dating back to even the megalithic era.
