    Very interesting post. I like the temple sculpture much. The images provided by you are fascinating, especially the chariot. During temple festivals, the idols are carried on various vahanas and chariots. I remember my childhood days in Chennai where there are so many temples that I used to visit. Thanks for posting this article.

    Looks like such a magical place. For the last few years we have been exploring many old temples in South India – Tamil Nadu mostly, but also several in Karnatka. Some dating back to more than thousand years ago. Each of these temples is full of living stories, living energy, such great force. Thank you Parul for giving a glimpse of this grand Hampi temple. Hopefully will be able to experience the magic of this place sometime in the near future!

    I have heard so much about the architecture and history of Hampi. Too bad I didn’t visit it. Loved reading about your experience. The ancient architects had built them with so much planning and intricate designs.

    Thanks for sharing this Parul, I was fascinated by this place by reading many travelogues and wanted to visit it from long time. Couldn’t visit the place yet but after reading this post my mind goes there again 🙂

    Beautiful, and the musical pillars fascinated me enough to feature them (with credit to you) in my Music Monday feature this Monday. Thank you!

    Fascinating information about the temple – especially, the design to produce musicals.

    I liked the ashtanga namaskara pose as well, wonder how that led us to believe it was a place of worship!

    […] this year, when we travelled to Hampi, this lady was the ticket checker at the Vittala Temple. She diligently focused on her duty but did not forget to smile at tourists. I did not talk to her […]
