Hampi also referred to as the Group of Monuments at Hampi, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in east-central Karnataka, India, renowned as the capital of Vijayanagara Empire in the 14th century. Hampi – Vijayanagara was the world’s second-largest medieval era city after Beijing, and probably India’s richest at that time. Its ruins are spread over 4,100 hectares (16 sq mi) and has been described by UNESCO as an “austere, grandiose site” of more than 1,600 surviving remains of the last great Hindu kingdom in South India that includes “forts, riverside features, royal and sacred complexes, temples, shrines, pillared halls, mandapas, memorial structures, water structures and others”.
Badami was the regal capital of the Badami Chalukyas. It is famous for its rock cut structural temples. It is located in a ravine at the foot of a rugged, red sandstone outcrop that surrounds Agastya lake. It has been selected as one of the heritage cities for HRIDAY – Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana scheme of Government of India.
Aihole is a historic site of ancient and medieval era Buddhist, Hindu and Jain monuments in North Karnataka. Located around an eponymous small village surrounded by farmlands and sandstone hills, Aihole is a major archaeological site featuring over one hundred and twenty stone and cave temples, spread along the Malaprabha river valley, in Bagalakote district.
Aihole, along with nearby Badami (Vatapi), emerged by the 6th century as the cradle of experimentation with temple architecture, stone artwork, and construction techniques. This resulted in 16 types of free-standing temples and 4 types of rock-cut shrines. The experimentation in architecture and arts that began in Aihole yielded the group of monuments at Pattadakal, a UNESCO world heritage site has been described as “a harmonious blend of architectural forms from northern and southern India” and an illustration of “eclectic art” at its height.
