Heritage Village, Anegundi

A hidden gem in the midst of the rocky terrain of Hampi, is the ancient village of Anegundi. Located on the northern banks of Tungabhadra River, about 20kms from the resort, the Anegundi village has a rich past that dates back to almost 5000 years. Legend has it, that this village was the monkey kingdom of Kishkinda as per the Ramayana. Another legend says that the kings of the mighty Vijayanagar Empire used Anegundi as a dock for their elephants, and the name is derived from ‘Aanai’ which means elephant in the native tongue. Punctuated by rocky hills, intermittent greenery, and the Tungabhadra river, this village harbours ancient temples and remarkable stone sculptures.

Virupaksha Temple

Standing tall, on the southern bank of the river Tungabadra, Virupaksha Temple, is a pilgrimage destination that sees thousands of tourists pouring in on a daily basis. It’s only 7kms from the resort and happens to be a destination of great religious significance. Not only is it the oldest temple in Hampi, it was a hub for native culture, art and crafts during the 14th century. Extensive renovations have transformed how this temple looks. But one thing that has remained static over the years, is the devotion that flows through its holy sanctum. The “gopuram” or centre shrine is one of the most prominently seen structures in Hampi and is worth a visit.

Badami-Aihole-Pattadakal

At a distance that is approximately 3 hours away from the resort, Badami-Aihole-Pattadakal deserves to be one of the wonders of the world. An embodiment of the Indian rock-cut architecture, the regal destination is carved out of rocks as well and is one of the most sought-after tourist spots. Check out more than just the renowned caves. Witness prehistoric cave paintings and other archaeological discoveries that are a testament to a bygone era. The Bhoothnath temple and the adjacent lake make Badami-Aihole-Pattadakal, a destination for the books.



Vittala Temple

Located 6kms away from the resort, on the southern banks of the Tungabhadra River, you’ll find the glorious Vittala Temple. Built during the reign of King Devaraya, its history can be traced back to the 16th century. An epitome of architecture, from the Vijayanagara Empire, this temple is an exemplary icon of human craftsmanship. The Vittala temple boasts of 56 music pillars that resonate a deep sound as you strike one of its pillars.

Ticket To Time Travel

Simple joys are found in the simple life. And what’s simpler than the village life? A cultural immersion that allows you to experience the unadulterated simplicity of life in a village, this is your ticket to time travel. Take a look at life in a land where time stands still. Shift the focus of your lens to paddy farming, visit a farmers house, learn how to make pottery and jaggery. Play games from the yesteryears like ;agori, gunny sack racing. Submerge yourself in the entirety of this timeless experience. Do it all!

Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary

The Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary is the only sanctuary in North Karnataka that’s home to 120 sloth bears. This sanctuary is a habitat for over 90 species of birds, 27 species of butterflies and also shelters numerous animals like leopards, hyenas, jackals, wild boars, porcupines to name a few. Around 20kms from the resort, this should be on your list of places to visit if you’re a nature lover.




Ugra Narasimha Statue

One of the largest statues in Hampi is that of Narasimha, sitting on a coiled, giant seven-headed snake. Carved out of a single block of stone and built during the reign of Krishnadevaraya, this is an aptly labelled, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated a distance of 4.5kms from the resort, this is one of the must-visit attractions of Hampi.

Sunrise & Sunset at Matanga

There’s no vantage point like Matanga Hill and at a mere short distance of 5kms, some consider it to be the best place to view a great sunrise or sunset. Watch the majestic Tungabhadra river bifurcating the town of Hampi, catch a peacock with its colourful plume or just wallow in the crimson sky. There’s much to do for everyone at Matanga Hill.
