The largest of them is the third cave, dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The first sculptural embellishment to dazzle the eye is the 18-armed Nataraja, striking 81 dance poses, in the first cave.

The superb ruins are set in a strong and beautiful boulder-strewn landscape, which has an almost magical quality. One can still glimpse the splendor of Vijaynagar in its ruins where Hospet Virupaksha temple rises majestically. The most splendid monuments of Hampi are, undoubtedly the Vithala temple complex memories of Hampi will stay with you always.

Revisit Hampi – the 14th century capital city of the Vijaynagar Empire lies in the Deccan Heartland, in the state of Karnataka. The ruins spread over an area of more than 26 sq. kms.
