Dear all,

We @ Shikhar Vedh invites u all for a Heritage tour to Hampi, Pattadakal , Ainhole & Badami


Hampi is nestled within the ruins of medieval city of Vijayanagar in the state of Karnataka, on the banks of the Tungabhadra river. Set in a surreal and beautiful boulder-strewn landscape, Vijayanagara (the City of Victory) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and although the city was destroyed by marauding Moghul invaders in the 16th century, much of it remains today. Enjoy sightseeing tour of the ancient ruins that are spread over 26 sq km area, many of which lie in and around Hampi Bazaar and the nearby riverside area, which also encompasses the city’s most sacred enclave of temples and ghats. East of Hampi Bazaar is the UNESCO-listed 16th century Vittala Temple, the undisputed highlight of the ruins.

Badami Boasting about the Buddhist architecture and sculptures of Lord Vishnu, the Badami Caves are majestic and sure to mesmerize you with its massive boulders: The caves overlook Agastya Lake and many small hillocks that carry a hypnotic charm. Enroute, if you’re lucky enough you’ll spot sun-flower fields making your journey worth-while.

Pattadakal – a World Heritage Site, has 10 major temples representing early Chalukaya architecture, the biggest of which is dedicated to lord Virupakshesvara.

Aihole, which is known as the “Cradle of Indian Architecture”, has over a hundred temples scattered around the village
