  13. Nice post. A sprawling spectacle with pillared pavilions within pillared pavilions and shrines within temples, the temple appears more like a town. Back in the 15th and 16th century, before Hampi was invaded, a small township was settled around its complex, remains of which can still be seen. Check out more fact about Vittala Temple.
