Virupaksha Temple

One of the oldest and largest in the city of ruins, this temple was built in the 7th century and is still in use. The temple is on the southern banks of the River Tungabhadra and has a very simple design and architecture. Over so many years and the changing rule of so many kings, a number of additions and expansions had been made in the form of pillars and small rooms. The temple is one of the gems of this ruined place and was built of simple brick and mortar. The life size idols of Lord Shiva is attractive and overall this place is an important site of pilgrimage for Shaivites. The present temple is also almost in ruins but still in use.

Mango Tree Restaurant

This is a restaurant in Hampi which seems to be completely under the shade of a large mango tree from where it derives its name. Eating over here is absolute value for money. They mainly serve Indian food but also make pizzas and other foreign dishes. The decor of this small restaurant is worth a mention. They have all sorts of masks and deity paintings on the walls. The seating arrangement is small and not many people can fit in at the same time. This is also an advantage since you can eat properly in this way. The stuffed capsicum curry and the thalis are special mentions over here. The servers are very prompt and efficient and the ambience is really good too.

About Bellary district

Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary I had seen sloth bears from a distance in the Western Ghats and the Nilgiris before, but when I found out about Daroji, I had the chance to see them from up close, in a sanctuary dedicated to them. The guide told us that locals believe that the name Daroji comes from the word darwaze or gates, indicating that this was a gateway to the nearby Hampi, the capital of the Vijayanagara empire, which flourished from 14th-17th centuries AD. Only misshapen boulders are strewn around. No human hand has touched these stones to mould them into the sort of mantapas I’d seen on our drive here.
