Exploring Hampi in two days (on a weekend)

Day-1: Temples & Lotus Mahal

Visited the Virupaksha Temple, one of the significant places with awe-inspiring architecture inside. There are deities of other gods apart from Lord Shiva. Since it was Saturday, there were a lot of tourists at the place (and monkeys, irrespective of the days). I had been to this Temple before and hence, didn’t spend much time now. Next, I went to the bike rental place and took my bike. There are bicycles and TVS XL 100s. I took a TVS and started roaming places.

Guess this incident in Ramayana
Yantrodharaka Hanuman Temple

Day-2: Stone Chariot and Sugreeva’s Cave

As I mentioned earlier, even though I’ve been to Hampi many times, I have not been to the Vijaya Vittala Temple, where the iconic monument, the Stone Chariot, is present. Even though I explored many places on Day-1, most were re-visits, and only a few were new to me. The main reason that I was there for two days is to leisurely explore the places I didn’t go to earlier, and this is one of them.
