The small village of Hampi is famed for showcasing the legacy of the Vijayanagara empire. It flourished as the last capital of the kingdom, and the aesthetic wealth of the rulers can be clearly seen in the monuments located here. The monarchs of Vijayanagara constructed numerous buildings, including temples, here that are a major attraction for tourists. Owing to their architectural and historical significance, these have earned a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. These temples give an insight into the affluent lifestyle of those rulers and also the culture, prevailing at that time. On a heritage tour to Hampi, you will not only learn about the past of the area, but a lot more.


The Mumbai to Hampi tour package is all you need to come across the splendour of the village. Your journey begins from Mumbai, from where you travel to Hospet city in Karnataka in a sleeper bus. From there, you head to the historical village of Hampi to admire the beauty, bestowed on it by sculptors and masons. After your arrival here, begins a sightseeing tour, which takes you to the gems of Hampi. The historical area is dotted with monuments, and an expert guide will give you intriguing information about the kingdom, and these feats of masonry and sculpting. The grand architecture of these buildings may even look more fascinating than that of several ultramodern structures of the 21st century! Dravidian architecture is reflected in the pyramid-shaped temple towers, constructed using granite, sandstone and soapstone.


You will have ample time to explore the ornately carved shrines in the complex, and the in-between meals will keep you energised. The third day of the trip takes you to the banks of the Tungabhadra River, on which you can enjoy a coracle ride. The round boats used by locals to cross rivers will bring you a lot of fun. After the ride, your exploration of the various monuments in Hampi continues. This trip will also take you to the revered Virupaksha Temple, which has a 9-tiered pyramidal tower, called vimana.


As the day ends, you pack your bags and leave for Hospet, where a sleeper bus will be waiting for you. This Hampi tour from Mumbai then takes you back to Maharashtra's capital, where the journey ends.
