Capital of the erstwhile Vijayanagara Empire, Hampi in Karnataka retains its glory as a place of pilgrimage and recreation. It is an important temple town with a lot to offer.

Visited predominantly by pilgrims and foreign tourists, it misses out on being a part of most Indian travellers’ bucket lists.

Boulders in ochre and rust, engulfing towering Dravida style temple complexes, cafes dotting the village scene, buzzing with people and music, a plethora of homestays packed with tourists, roadside shops selling local junk, Hampi is a sight to behold, steeped in hippie culture.

Here’s a list of reasons why Hampi should be on every traveller’s bucket list:
