Brief about this plan:

Total five days trip, Started on 14th Night from Mumbai, reached Bijapur at 11.00 a.m. via Solapur

15th – Bijapur

16th - Badami, Banashankari, Mahakut, Pattadakal & Aihole

17th – Travel to Hampi, on the way – Tungabhadra Dam. Remaining half day covered Vithala Temple at Hampi, which was a major place.

18th - Hampi  

19th – Rest & back to Mumbai

Easily accessible, most of the places are at walking distance at Hampi, Must visit for people, because these places are mostly credited as Cradle of Indian Arts & Architecture. I would suggest spend more time at each place to let the glorious era gone by sink in you.
