Talarigatta Gate

Talarigatta Gate (alternatively Talarighatta Gate ) was one of the main entrance points into the urban centre of the capital from the riverside. The main road to Talarigatta (the coracle ferry point near the suspension bridge) from Kamalapura pass through this arched structure.

This largely damaged structure still maintains its original intent, a gateway on the main road. A tiny shrine of Hanuman is located just in front of the gate

It’s possible to reach the top area of this gateway. From there the traces of the extending fortifications are visible. Talarigata means tollgate, probably that would have been its original intent.

Visit this part of the Route 5 described in the Hampi itinerary.
