We have been receiving many emails asking for travel advices and other travel related enquiries from people who are planing to visit Hampi.
hampi.in is not a commercial website to offer such services. Our knowledge on the competitive and ever evolving travel & tour business is limited to provide a qualified suggestion. And of course we not have the resources to respond to all emails requesting travel information.
Go with a reputed agency, if you are selecting a travel agent, not just the lowest priced one. You can do a bit of google search to know how other customers found their services.
The whole of Hampi is crisscrossed with a network of irrigation canals of varying size. Connecting everything from temples to palaces to tanks to quarters to the agricultural lands, many of them were made during the Vijayanagara days. A good number of them, especially the ones run along the valley area, are still in use.
Tungabhadra is a major river in the south Indian peninsula. Hampi is located on the south bank somewhere in the middle of this river’s path. In this area the river takes a number of twists and turns owing to the rocky terrain.
The river has immense significance in forming the political & religious history of Hampi. The river along with along with the boulder-strewn hills formed the northern barrier of the capital. It was not easy for an invading army cross the river without the fate of a sure defeat.
