Renowned as the most impressive monument in Hampi, the Vithala Temple is located at the southern bank of the Tungabhadra River and is known for its elaborate sculptured work. This piece of art from the 16th century is decorated with ornate pillars and carvings, showcasing the wonderful artistic skills of Vijayanagar Kingdom.
Another wonder of this temple is its 56 musical pillars, which produce an echo when tapped. An awe-inspiring chariot carved out of a stone with rotating wheels is located in the back lawn of the temple. It was built during the rule of King Devaraya II.
