Shri Vijayavitthala Temple is a true representative of human craftsmanship. Dedicated to Lord Vitthala or Lord Vishnu the Vijaya vitala temple is a wonderful monument situated at Hampi. Built mainly by Dravidian architecture the temple has all the stuff that a typical south Indian Temple would have.
Built in 15th Century AD, the temple is built in the form of sprawling campus with many halls, pavilions, temples located inside the campus. Many successive kings have enhanced the campus of temple during their regimes to this present form. The main attraction of this temple is 56 musical pillars when tapped gently these pillars produce musical sounds. These pillars are popularly known as Musical Pillars or SAREGAMA Pillars. The temple is situated just 2 Km East of Hampi Bazaar and opens from 8.30 in the Morning to 5.30 in the Evening.
Legend has it that Lord Vishnu found it too grand to live in and thus returned to his own humble home. The Stone Chariot is situated to the east of the temple hall. By far, this is the most amazing monument in Hampi and is portrayed as the icon for Hampi.
