With last day in Hand, and a chit pad full Of things to do along with Must Watch archeological sites, I arranged them in order And started with Virupaksha Temple and went on to
Hampi Bazar Street
Vijaya Vittala temple
Lakshmi Narasimha Temple
The Great Platform
day ended with the Sunset and Coracle Ride which was actually Expensive, one will end up paying 500rs per person for 20-30min ride.
All these places are Mapped one after the other and can be seen in 5-6 hrs unless u want to sit and observe every detail on the stone and landscape.
Things I missed becz I failed to plan first two days properly and are Must Visit
Matanga Hill(Sunset/Sunrise Point)
I am someone who gets impatient if something is left in my check list and it’s important if ur at such a place in burning heat to plan well.
Cafe’s around will have ceiling fans which will be of No Help, so Check Temperature Pattern of the place before planning a trip.
U love sophisticated eateries, Hampi is not the place to search for them...lots of cafe’s in Hippie Island serve average food with Menus giving preference to Foreign Travellers pallet, but u will end up going there every single night becz the other parts of Hampi closes by 10.00 PM.
Vegetarian cuisine is the focus in Hampi and Mango Tree is Topping the Game with it’s affordable, filling and good portion.
Alcohol is expensive, with limited availability at only one legal store serving in entire area,so either stock up or try in Hippie Island.
Stuff is available in Hippie Island, you will get to buy it only in Day Time and the same people will refuse to even talk about it in Night & it’s expensive.
Overall I am amused by the archeological structures and thankful that I had this opportunity to see this Part of India...Entire Historical Era in the Lap of this Small City and so much to be grateful to life......
