Elephant Stable

#Monument in Hampi

The Elephant stables of Hampi are a major tourist attraction. Though built many centuries ago, they have not lost their ability to awe people with their formidable sense of might. The Elephant stables are some of the best preserved monuments in Hampi, virtually untouched by aging over time. This was where the royal elephants used to reside during the Vijayanagara empire.

Built in the 15th century, this gigantic structure boasts of intricate carvings and fine craftsmanship. It was built in the Indo-Islamic style of architecture. The structure proper is composed of eleven massive domed chambers, each having the capability to accommodate two fully grown elephants. The chambers were interconnected by large archway passages. The mahouts used the rear side of the chamber to enter and exit the abode of the gentle giants. Even today, it still stands as one of the most gargantuan buildings ever built in its contemporary era. It is definitely worth a visit here.
