Vijaya Vittala Temple, Hampi, Karnataka, India
Devaraya II is believed to have built the Vijaya Vittala Temple in the 15th-16th century and his successor Krishnadevaraya made major enhancements and additions. Synonymous with architectural and sculptural brilliance the Vijaya Vittala Temple took decades to build - it is believed that these magnificent set of monuments did not attain the height of grandiose as originally dreamt and planned by Krishnadevaraya. The vast temple is made up of Maha mandapa, Ranga mandapa, Kalyan mandapa, Utsav mandapa and the garbhagriha.
Vijaya Vittala Temple Complex and all its monuments are a part of the Hampi Group of Monuments and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. How to reach Hampi?
