Hospet Tourism & Travel Guide

Hospet is a chaotic and busy city in the Bellary district of Karnataka and is mainly known for its close proximity to Hampi. Numerous monuments and temples throw light on this ancient city’s past. According to legends, this town was built by a Vijayanagara ruler, Krishna Deva Raya, in memory of his mother, Nagambalika. Being situated on the banks of Tungabhadra river, it is the site for the magnificent Tungabhadra Dam. With gardens, fountains, lights and sounds, the dam resembles a Japanese-style park. You can avail a bus service that will take you up the hilltop. From the lighthouse level or the bird’s eye view, the dam looks splendid. If you can make it during sunset, you’ll witness some beautiful panoramas. Hospet also houses the Vijayshree-theme village where rural India comes to life. Based on Rajasthan's culture, the place is enlivened by folk dances and music. There is Rajasthani food, camel and horse rides and even a mehendi counter and astrologers. This beautiful recreation of Rajasthan in the middle of Karnataka brings life to Hospet after sundown and is very enjoyable.

Bangalore or Bengaluru, also known as the Silicon valley of India, will greet you with dreamy weather, Carnatic fusion melodies, a signature breakfast of masala dosa and filter coffee, and notorious traffic. Visit classic attractions such as the Bangalore castle known for its Tudor-style architecture and Tipu Sultan’s summer palace that dates back to the 17th century. To get your art fix, you could head to the fascinating Venkatappa Art Gallery. One of the more popular things to do in Bangalore is to take a walk through the green spaces of the 19th century old Cubbon Park, that were once the reason why Bangalore was known as the Garden City. Bangalore also serves as a comfortable cohabitation of tradition and modernisation that can be seen throughout the places to visit in the city, with throngs of vibrant Kannada temples coexisting with budding start-ups. Travel to Bangalore for the lively cafes, quirky shops and a fascinating contemporary culture. Vidhana Soudha, the Neo-Dravidian granite palace is also must visit places for the architecture aficionados. Tourists can head to the much revered Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR), for authentic south Indian food and Toit’s, the brick-walled microbrewery for a cold beer.
