"Vittala temple complex is definitely the main attraction of Hampi - it is a testimony to the stupendous architectural achievements of the Vijayanagara era. It is home to one of the only three stone chariots in India. Also, the nritya mahal (a separate building for dance and other recreational activities) is also interesting for the use of acoustics to generate different melodies from the stone pillars - this goes to show how advanced the civilization was! It is recommended to hire a guide (300 INR as of 2015) to get a better understanding of this historical site."
