Granaries

Granaries

Numerous structures and artifacts related to food grain storage have been identified at various locations in Hampi. Some of them have been associated with the temples whereas a number of them have been non-religious in nature.

The remains of a few granaries can be seen scattered near the east of the Hazararama Temple area across the mud track. This is a bit off mud track that can take you to the Hazararama Temple and the Danaik’s Enclosure. The mud track runs east-west direction along the northern boundary of the Danaik’s Enclosure. Close to the northeast end of the Danaik’s Enclosure it takes a tentative right bend towards south before straightening back to the eastward direction. A bit further it join the T-junction. North (at the left) of the said bend lies foundations of the granaries.

A couple of them are circular in shape. The rest are all of cubical. The cubical ones are set in an array of identical rows.

The area north east of this is believed to been the quarters used by the royal guards. The granaries here support this assumption.

This again is a less frequented place by the visitors. Nevertheless it’s one of those spots you can make a quick side trip to without much strain on your main itinerary.
