Ambitious in its scale, this ancient aqueduct probably makes the high watermark of Hampi’s hydraulics projects .
All what remains of this massive aqueduct is a tall section of a bridge like structure. The whole structure is built with rectangular dressed rock blocks. The unusual height for an aqueduct suggests the ambitious plan to lift huge quantities of water to a suburb located at an elevated plane.
If you are staying at one of those huts at Virupapur Gadde, you are probably at a walking distance from these ruins.

Anegondi was the capital of the region, before it was moved to Hampi. In fact this was the core of a tiny kingdom that eventually expanded into the Vijayanagar Empire covering the whole of south India. Currently Anegondi is sleepy village with a principally farming community inhibiting it.
Navabrindavan, near Hampi, is of importance to the followers of the saint Sri Raghavendra. The Brindavan (sacred tomb) of the saint is located in a small island formed by Tungabadra , a bit east of the Anegondi village.
This place is highly sought after by the pilgrims and is treated with reverence.
