For an introduction to the Hampi complex, see part 1 of the Sights of Hampi.
Part 2 – Achutaraya Temple
Part 3 – Virupaksha Temple
Part 4 – Queen’s Palace and Bath
Part 6 – Hazara Rama Temple

Our second day started at the Royal Enclosure. Not much is left standing, but the carvings on the sabha mandap, the royal viewing platform used during the Dasara festival, are worth the visit.
