Karnataka is the sixth largest state in India, it is the only state in India where gold is found. It is the land of silk and sandal, of coffee and cardamom, of the 17m statue of Jain Saint Gomateshwara and of the enchaining sculptural wealth of Belur and Halebid of the historical ruins of Hampi and monuments of Bijapur. To the composite culture of India, the contribution of Karnataka,. is in no way inferior to that of any other region of India. In fact, in many fields, Karnataka’s contribution far exceeds that of the other regions individually. This is specially so in the fields of are, music, religion, and philosophy.

Karnataka possesses a rich cultural heritage. The folk theatre has an ancient and rich tradition, the two principal forms being Yakshagana and the puppet theatre. ‘Yakshagana’ is akin to Kathakali of Kerala in the choice of its elaborate costumes and vigorous dancing. ‘Bhootada Kunita’ (Dance of the Divine Cult), Nagarnandala’ and the demon dance are some quaint rituals prevalent only in Dakshina Kannada coastal area.

Hampi was the capital city of the powerful South Indian Vijayanagar Empire. Founded by Harihara and Bukka in 1336, it fell to the Muslim rulers of North India in 1565 after the disastrous battle of Talikota and subsequently lapsed into decline and abandonment. The ruins of the historical monuments have stood the ravages of man and time and still evoke memories of the grandeur of a bygone era. The main attraction of Karnataka are:

A visit to Hampi is a sojourn into the past. The best way to experience this World Heritage Site is to take a leisurely stroll through the eloquent ruins. Most of the important structures and ruins are located in two areas, which are generally referred to as the Royal Centre and the Sacred Centre. The Royal Centre in the southwest part of the site contains structures that seem to have been palaces, baths, pavilions, royal stables, and temples for ceremonial use. The Sacred Centre is situated on the northern edge of the city along the banks of the holy Tungabhadra River. The ruins of Hampi are extensive and fascinating enough to absorb your attention for several days. There is always something new to discover in Hampi, If you are in a hurry, a day or two will suffice to see all the important structures. Photography and archaeology buffs should plan on staying a little longer.
